In this painting the Archangel Saint Zadkiel is exquisitely depicted.
Zadkiel is thought by some to be one of the seven archangels who stand before God.
Zadkiel means the Righteousness of God
It is believed that Zadkiel was the angel who stopped Abraham from killing his young son, Isaac, as a sacrifice to God.
The archangels are usually young and beautiful. They are the knights of Heaven and must be dressed in splendor. They have to evoke sympathy, as well as a sense of their power and also of their benevolence, as their function is the performance of good works.
Solemn and powerful figure, it was painted with meticulous detail.
His regal, exquisite brocade gown is embellished with bronze leaf.
This addition of stenciled or painted gold leaf onto oil paintings is called, as it was in early contracts, brocateado.
It is also sometimes termed sobredorado (overgilding) and has also been described as escarchado.
Look at the exquisite facial features and the color composition, it is just simply amazing.
