"My Guardian Angel"

This is actually very close to how I always saw the Archangel Michael in my minds eye (minus the little red cloth, of course ;) ).
I am not religious at all, so the iconic Saint's halo around the angel's head is there for decorative purposes and to balance out the painting color-wise.

This is very similar to Archangel Uriel, who wields a Flaming Sword and is often depicted as being the Guardian of Eden.

To clarify, there are 7 Archangels described, all of whom are patrons of a different aspect of His Will. They are also often depicted in icons as handsome or as androgynous men.

Archangel Michael is commonly depicted wielding a spear and standing victorious over the Dragon, when he cast him out of Heaven.

Gabriel is often seen using a horn, signifying his role as the Messenger of the Almighty.

Raphael is depicted holding either a staff or a flask - showing he is the Patron of Healers and medicine.

Sealtiel is seen as praying.

Jegudiel holds a golden wreath in his right hand and a whip in the other.

And Barachiel clutches a white rose against his chest.
_____________________________________

Although not one of the Blessed Archangels himself, there is one named Azrael, the Angel of Death. He is often described as being a dark and brooding figure, hooded and cloaked - but unlike his common depiction as a skeleton, he's said to be human - albeit appearing differently to everyone that sees him.

I really don't carry religious attachments, but I do have a strong spirituality. He looks like the Guardian angel I always envision myself having. Except without the green robe.

Very beautiful! I love this! :heart: Fave!
