Archangel Michael Standing in Majesty Byzantine Wall Relief 13H -
The Archangel Michael ranks as the greatest of all angels whether in Jewish, Christian or Islamic writings. He is the Chief of the Order of Virtues, Chief of Archangels, and the Angel of Repentance, Righteousness, Mercy, and Sanctification. This Archangel Michael relief is reproduced after an original in the Byzantine Museum, Athens from 1600 A.D. It is an interesting example of a Byzantine artist's interest in placing a human form in an architectural space. See how Michael stands on steps and an arch appears above. Yet it is an unconvincing, disproportionate allocation of space which looks flat instead of lifelike.
Archangel Michael Wall Hanging is made from bonded stone, aged stone finish or with color details, ready to hang, antique stone finish with color details. (A-014SP)
