Russian Tempera Painted Icon: Saint Archangel Michael:
$186


This Orthodox icon depicts Saint Archstrateg of the Bodiless Powers Archangel Michael. When Lucifer claimed in his arrogance: "I am God", Archangel cried in wrath: "Who is God?" These words (Michael in Hebrew) became his name in the Christian tradition. The feast of the Counsel of Archstrateg Michael and other Bodiless Heavenly Powers is on 8 (21) November. Another feast is on 6 (19) September.

This Russian Orthodox Icon was painted by a modern professional church artist at the Russian town Rybinsk (not far from Moscow) that is one of the main and old centers of the Russian icon painting.

The icon was painted on a wooden board with the shrine i.e. the rectangular hollow at the middle part designed for the image. The margins are above the hollow. The shrines mostly belong to the antique icons from the 18 century and earlier.

The board was covered with levkas (gesso, special priming) and painted with egg tempera and gold paints that use the small parts of leaf gold. The style is traditional and strictly follows antique canons of the icon painting.

There is an original wooden wedge at the back to prevent the board from wrapping.

Size = 8.1x7.5x1.4 (20.5x19x3.5 cm). Weight = 673 gr.
