Saint Raphael the Archangel canvas painting 30x40 cm of the Healer Angel Contemporary byzantine icon sacred art by angelicon


Saint Raphael the Archangel- A Contemporary byzantine icon of the Healer Angel   executed on canvas with egg tempera. The Archangel is named  Healer Angel, due to the account found in the "Book of Tobit" - In his hands He is holding  medical tools (like the Saints Unmercenaries) 
The icon (measuring 30x40 cmapprox) was painted by hand with the egg tempera technique. Several layes of egg tempera where applied - and an organic dye was also added to acquire an antique patina and finally shellac and resin varnish have sealed the colours.

The icon comes tenderly protected in its individual bag, together with its instructions how to care for it, a little sachet of herbs from our garden in Crete -and our custom icon favors - Ready to be given as a gift
