Brighten your day with this charming handmade painting, by artists in India, of the Archangel San Miguel.
The Archangel (angel of high rank) San Miguel, also known as St. Michael, prince of the heavenly host of angels, is one of only three angels mentioned by name in the Bible. In this icon, Miguel exudes two aspects: the handsome youth, whose zealous love for God is overpowering; and the Noble Warrior Prince, terror of the rebellious company of angels and all that is evil.
Art of Peru is famous for The Cuzco School which was a Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) during the Colonial period, in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The tradition and European influence in these paintings originated after the 1534 Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire.
Drawing from the techniques of the past, modern Peruvian paintings are characterized by their use of exclusively religious subjects and the predominance of red, yellow and earth colors. They are also remarkable for their use of gold leaf. They often adapt the topics to depict their native flora and fauna as a backdrop in their works.
