The Angel Warrior

The image of St Michael triumphant over Satan is familiar one throughout Roma – many churches have paintings or sculptures of the battle between the forces of heaven and hell. And of course many of the antique stores have prints and wooden statues of the winged warrior Saint with his foot on the neck of a cringing devil.

As my friend Bev and I were walking through the Ghetto this afternoon we came across this rather interesting duo dedicated to the subject in a shop window.

This engraving is the traditional interpretation of the holy battle.

This mixed media sculpture is a very modern take on the same subject.

It took a moment but I got the message!
