Product description:

This impressive oil painting depicts the Archangel Saint Ariel.
One of the seven archangels, he holds a branch of olive and wears a richly embroidered tunic. The name Ariel is Hebrew and means Lion of God'. This beautiful being of light supervises the realm of earthly angels that are sometimes referred to as the mythical creates we call fairies, elves, leprechauns, etc. These so-called mythical creates are very real beings of light known as the Earth Angels. Ariel assists the human realm to communicate and connect with the realm of Earth Angels. Ariel and her legion of Earth Angels can help us to understand the natural rhythms of the earth and experience the magic and healing properties of the trees, flowers, rocks and soil. Ariel is also believed to work with Archangel Raphael in the healing arts.

In this painting he wears a silken gold brocaded tunic. The deep lace flounce on the kiltlike lower section matches the flowing sleeves. His footwear is a high leather shoe with gold lacing and trim. Fine soft stockings are held in place with jeweled buckles, and brooches also clasp the sleeves and collar. The half-open wings and swirling cloak give the impression that he has just landed from on high-even of weightlessness. Here we see the metamorphosis of the traditional stiff figure into Baroque exuberance-a style peculiar to Alto Peru. Even in Mexico such flamboyance is not encountered.

An exquisite portrait, details are richly embellished with bronze leaf, an indicative of the artists of the Cusco School of Painting.
Unique oil, it was painted with meticulous detail.

Look at the exquisite facial features and the color composition, it is just simply amazing . This remarkable painting has some subtle high-relief details. Bronze Leaf was used to accentuate finishing touches on this magnificent portrait.
