Archangel Gabriel, 20th century, Russia, gold / tempera on wooden board, size 31 x 22 cm, price € 1300,-

The Archangel Gabriel (“man of God” or “God’s strength” in Hebrew) is, according to some theological books, the servant of Divine mysteries. The Old Testament reads that the Lord sent the Archangel Gabriel to the Prophet Daniel to explain him the meaning of his vision. “And it came to pass, when I, Daniel, had seen the vision, and sought for the meaning, then, behold, there stood before me as the appearance of a man. And I heard a man's voice… which called, and said, Gabriel, make this man to understand the vision”. (Daniel 8: 15–16). The Archangel Gabriel said to Daniel: “Understand , O son of man: for at the time of the end shall be the vision (Daniel 8: 17), and, explaining this vision, prophesied the coming of Christ, His putting to death and the destruction of Jerusalem. Episodes concerning Gabriel are also to be found in non-canonical books (the Book of Enoch). The authenticity of every icon is guaranteed. Every icon is sold with extensive written expertise
