Description

Icon with Archangel Michael & Holy Mandylion on Naturally Aged Wood

An icon with Major General Michael or Archangel Michael holding the Holy Mandylion. 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. Here the Archangel Michael is depicted in a unique composition holding the Holy Mandylion where the face of Jesus Christ was first imprinted.

Blessed Wood that Came Out of Paradise

The wood at this icon has been carefully cut and preserved by monks with excellent techniques on processing wood. This piece of naturally aged wood was part of a ceiling beam but when monks renovated the cell and replaced the beam, they thought that these pieces of wood could be used to make beautiful artworks. On Mount Athos there are dozens of cells and many of them are located there for centuries. This wood carries the blessings and prayers of monks outside the borders of Mount Athos. Thanks to Mount Athos Exhibition, these collectible icons can be a great present for our friends and relatives.
