Ex. Tax


An angel is a messenger of God, and a being which has stood before God and praised Him from a time before human comprehension. We cannot fully grasp what an angel's exact nature is, but we can understand an angel's function on earth. In icons, angels—especially the high-ranking Archangels—are depicted in an earthly form. All the angels are dressed as humans, in clothing accented with gold, the color of holiness and Heaven.

The Archangel Michael is the warrior of God, and in any given instance of heavenly warfare is likely present fighting for Him. In icons, Michael can always be identified by his soldier's attire, his armor, and the sword he wields. Also, Michael is frequently clothed in some shade of red. The color red can symbolize power, war, blood, and sacrifice: all appropriate to the angel who is engaged in warfare. His liturgical hymns refer to him as "the Commander of the bodiless hosts." He holds a flaming sword in one hand, a reference to the angel who guards the Garden of Eden in the book of Genesis, and an orb in his other hand, symbolizing his authority as the supreme Archangel.

This icon was painted by Fr. Theodore Koufos.

    Another Exquisite Heirloom Work of Art

    Posted by Timothy Capps on Apr 17th 2020

    Legacy always does a five-star job and this icon of St. Michael the Archangel is no exception. It reminds me of the angels depicted on the doors to the altar in our local Russian Orthodox Church. St. Micael is my Confirmation Saint and the icon beautifully reminds me of his protection, especially now, in mid-April 2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic. It also reminds me of my Guardian Angel. The detains are exquisite. I had purchased another icon previously and it was just as fine. I also have their ingenious and beautiful “smokeless” deluxe incense burner set. I now know Legacy are people with whom it is a pleasure to deal, and I can have 100% confidence in ordering from them. Given this, and their wide assortment of icons, I would not consider buying from anyone else. I sense this as much a vocation as a business for them.
