This icon print by Father John Giuliani depicts the Archangel Michael, Warrior and Defender.
In biblical tradition, Archangel Michael is seen as a victorious defender in spiritual battles. In this image, the darkened globe on which Michael stands is symbolic of our dark nature. Like the Sweat Lodge in which participants suffer purification, this darkened sphere represents the self emerging into light transmitted by the Archangel. His victory wand and feathered drum rest firmly on the vanquished dark ground. In his other hand he holds the Sacred hoop enhanced with sprigs of purifying sage and ribbons the colors of the directions, representing the full extent of cosmic salvation.
Traditional iconography gives witness to the human face of the Sacred. This icon, imaged in the features of America's indigenous peoples, reveals anew that sacred power. It celebrates the soul of the Native American as the original spiritual presence on this continent, and as a prophetic sign, it celebrates the vision of Native and Christian peoples of this land.
