Description

Icon with Archangel Michael on naturally aged wood

Major General Michael is portrayed with all his splendor as a Commander of the Insolent Forces. The movement of the Archangel is emphasized by his great wings. His face has youthful features and has been painted with dense touches following the Byzantine tradition. The faithful and devoted to God Archangel Michael is the defender of the poor and weak people. He protects them from the evil and the hateful devil’s hatred.

In countless cases, this protection has been manifested by miraculous events. Primarily, however, as our Church teaches, he protects the souls of the people who are eager to the Lord, from the attacks of the demons and their efforts to prevent souls in their course to God. Archangel Michael is the one who appeared to Abraham at Isaac’s sacrifice. Then to Lot when he redeemed him with his family from the Sodom disaster. He appeared to Jacob when he was saved by his brother Esau who wanted to murder him.

Blessed wood that came out of Paradise

A beautiful icon with Archangel Michael on naturally aged wood which comes from a renovated cell at Mount Athos. Every part of this cell is connected with the monks who lived there and carries within blessings and prayers from many years ago. At Mount Athos are dozens of cells and some of them are located there for centuries.

This piece of wood was once part of a door leaf in a cell at Mount Athos. After the renovation works monks decided to use it for icons. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks decided to reuse them and give us a small piece of this history. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed to support the image as well as a leather hook.
