In the Old Testament (Dan. 10; 12), Michael is called the leader of the ranks of angels and the protector of the people. In the New Testament (Rev. 12:7-9), Michael and his angels fight a dragon–symbol of evil–and hurl him and his followers from heaven. Because of these and other references and associations, Michael has become the patron of soldiers and policemen and a figure who is appealed to for protection of individuals. While he is the patron of soldiers in general, he is more specifically also appealed to as the patron of paratroopers. Michael’s feast day is September 29.
This unique statue is hand carved by American artist Hank Schlau and hand painted by his wife Karen Schlau. Made of durable material that can be displayed both indoors and outdoors.
