Description

Icon with Archangel Michael on Naturally Aged Wood

This is an icon with Major General Michael or Archangel Michael. 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

This naturally aged wood that was used at the icon with the representation of Archangel Michael came from a renovated cell from Mount Athos which has suffered many damages through years. Renovation works were necessary to remain in good condition so monks can continue to live there. Monks are replacing doors, window shutters or ceiling beams but they are keeping the pieces of wood so they can reuse them. They are cutting and processing the wood with excellent techniques so they can use it later for their artworks such as these icons. These pieces of wood are part of the history of Mount Athos. So monks reuse them and they are giving us a small piece of this history.
