The beautiful colors! We love color! That's what caught our eye on this stained glass window of the Archangel Michael. Angels are often portrayed brightly colored creatures of light, so what better way to represent them than a stained glass window? We can't send the window, but we do have the next best thing, a brilliantly colored print on a very white paper. We love the colored vestments he has! We enjoy looking at this picture.

This is an American stained glass window from 1908, and the style is straightforwardly American. Michael is simply standing, looking gentle but strong. He is traditionally shown with a sword, but a shield is an armament that gets across the idea of him being a Defender. He is normally depicted in battle with the devil, but we like how he is shown here: in church with us, serenely keeping guard.
** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
