Saint Michael Archangel

Icon of Saint Michael Archangel made using the ancient painting techniques of the Sienese school of the 14th century.

Egg yolk tempera on a 23 carat pure gold background.


The icon is embellished with an elegant relief frame made entirely by hand by master Silvia Salvadori and gilded in pure gold.


The entire composition recalls the beautiful Sienese gold backgrounds of Simone Martini's school.


In this small icon on a gold background of Saint Michael Archangel we find the workmanship of the gold background finely engraved with a burin and the use of the same bright colours as the Sienese icons of Duccio di Buoninsegna and Simone Martini.


This small icon on a gold background is a unique piece.
