Raphael is the healing archangel and so I chose to make an icon of him for my nephew who, I thought, could use some kind of healing.
I was happy to find this one, with a second angel in the shadows. Don’t know exactly who it is, but I loved it. And it is an interesting image all together. And also fit with the kind of protection I wanted to put in this icon.
I made it on a thick piece of pressed wood. I made 5 of them and I love the size and how they can stand independently. But they are a bit more difficult to paint on.
