The Archangel Michael
5 x 6.75 inches

One of the four named Archangels, we read about Michael in the Books of Daniel, Jude and Revelation. His name means "Who is like God". Saint Michael is a protector of the faithful and an adversary of wickedness. He is the leader of heaven's army. In the sanctuary, Michael is shown on the Deacon Door to the left of the Royal Doors, with Gabriel on the right. This tile is a typical Russian depiction of the Archangel, and the face intentionally draws aspects from a heavily damaged XV century icon by Andrei Rublev. The Synaxis of Saint Michael is celebrated November 8.

Supreme Leaders of God's armies and ministers of the divine glory, princes of the bodiless Angels and guides of men, ask what is good for us and great mercy, as Supreme Leaders of the Bodiless Hosts.

We suggest these glazes for this tile:
Transparent, Oxide or Jade
