If the rest of the angels usually show themselves to people in order to bring some news, the sending of St. Michael the Archangel to the ground is always associated with the manifestation of the miraculous power of the Lord.
The Archangel is depicted on the icon with a golden flaming sword in his left hand, and the True Cross, which symbolizes the victory over the devil, in his raised right hand.
The icon of “Saint Michael the Archangel” protects the believers from visible and invisible enemies, gives heavenly patronage of soldiers fighting for a just cause, holds a sleeping person from danger.
They pray St. Michael the Archangel for healing, deliverance from evil spirits, on the consecration of a new house. He is also worshiped as a protector of the souls of the dead.
Like the Church Icons plated with a gilded riza (a metal plating on an icon), the Icon of the Easter Egg is framed with a superimposed decorative pattern.
Each of the Eggs is unique because its components are hand-made and manually assembled. Thus there are no existing absolutely identical copies of any of the Easter Eggs offered to your attention.
According to the Russian Orthodox tradition, all of the products offered (icons, pectoral crosses, candles, church plate elements) are sanctified in the Temple by sprinkling with Holy water.
