From the Heavenly Protector line by Joseph's Studio, this masterfully painted St. Michael statue stands on a base with a small drawer that contains a scroll with a reverent prayer to the saint. A portion of the prayer is..."St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil." Detailed facial features along with rich colors create a mighty and completely striking depiction of our universal protector.

I had been looking for the right St. Michael for me - for years. Did not want the one with the devil on it, which is all I could find. I hunted the internet day and night just looking for the right one. I do have other angels, but I don't collect them, each has to have a special meaning for my life. When I came upon this St. Michael, I knew my prayers were answered. Best Uses: Reminds me to pray; Cons: Wish it were larger; Describe Yourself: Simple in my faith; Pros: Visually Pleasing
All I expected and more.

I have placed the statue of St. Michael the Archangel on prominent display in my home. As a religious icon, it provides a focus for prayers directed toward St. Michael.
I especially like the fact that the prayer in the hidden scroll was reproduced on the packaging so I could cut out the larger prayer and minimize referencing the smaller, more fragile document. Best Uses: Display, Home, Religious icon; Describe Yourself: Catholic; Pros: Excellent quality, Visually Pleasing, worth the cost

Again, I am so happy I found the Catholic company online. I don't know why I can't find such lovely statues in our local religious stores. I have not been disappointed with any of the Joseph Studio creations. They are perfect in detail and color.
