18th C. Mexican Wood Santo, St. Michael Defeating Satan

Lot 0140 Details

Description
Latin America, Mexico, ca. 18th to 19th century CE. A carved and nicely polychromed wooden santo depicting the winged archangel Saint Michael dressed as the general of heaven's angels and protector of the Church Militant, donning regal garments and vanquishing the devil underfoot, armed with a silver shield and sword. This iconography preceded and inspired the traditional depiction of Michael and his angels waging war on the dragon, symbolizing the Christian conflict of Christ vs. the Antichrist. Size: 12.5" H (31.8 cm); 14.5" H (36.8 cm) on pedestal

As Chief Commander of the Heavenly hosts, Saint Michael bravely challenged the Devil. Satan, after all, was Michael's opponent in the battle for Heaven. The figures' gestures and motion are characteristically pantomime-like and dramatic. Archangels are understood to be helpers and allies who offer dedicated protection through life's trials and travails. Their names usually end in the suffix "ael" or "iel" meaning “Shining One” in Hebrew, e.g. Miguel, Rafael, Gabriel, Ariel, Ezekiel, Barachiel, Uriel, etc.

Provenance: From the Lilly and Francis Robiscek Collection of Religious Art, Charlotte, NC

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
