The two special Angels named in the Bible are Archangels Michael and Gabriel. St. Gabriel was chosen to announce the future incarnation of God and to stay with the Virgin Mary to watch over her throughout her entire life on Earth. St. Michael is believed to be the leader of all Angels who is given the power of good to fight evil. In Byzantine art, Angels generally were depicted with wings wearing long robes. Here St. Michael is depicted in a red robe holding a red scepter in his left hand and an orb in his right hand. The red color of his robe and a scepter signifies his authority and divine life. St. Michael and St. Gabriel are leaning toward each other. St. Gabriel is depicted consistently with the Byzantine style, wearing a long purple robe symbolizing an important holy figure. “And the Angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stands in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to show thee these glad tidings.” -Luke 1:19). Seemingly, he has a trumpet in his mouth, suggesting he is making an announcement.
