This gorgeous icon features a vivid and elegant image of Saint Michael the Archangel encased in sterling silver repoussée. The background is wood with a decorative metal hook for hanging.
According to tradition, Saint Michael the Archangel was the leader of God's Army against Lucifer's uprising. Saint Michael celebrates devotion among Muslims, Christians and Jews with writings about him in all three cultures.
Michael is known of the patron of the military, firefighters and police. This is perhaps due to his role as protector and defender. He is so beloved, that many towns throughout the world have been named especially for him.
