Russian Tempera Painted Icon: Saint Archangel Michael For Sale
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.
