Michael's Archangel painting

  • on: January 03, 2010, 06:35:50 PM
This doesn't really have to do with the hoax, but an interesting observation regarding possibly some symbolism within one of Michael's paintings.  The other day I came across the painting that Michael had done with him being the archangel Michael standing over the devil.....didn't know what to make of it until I saw the original painting and read the prayer that goes with it.  Then I compared the two paintings and saw something that could be  VERY symbolic................



notice first, that MJ doesn't have the sword in his hands ready to strike, but has prayer hands. (The power of God versus violence). THEN.....Look at the face of the devil in MJ's painting.  Look familiar????????   JOSPEPH????????? and look at his position....face up with his arm up like he is going to hit Michael????

The prayer reads, "Saint Michael the archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may god rebuke him, we humbly pray; and so thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, trust into hell satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
What do you think???????????

I think, this is a painting of someone, who sees the same in Michael as we do.
Not sure about that, but I don't think Michael would want to put Joe into the role of devil - there are other people, who deserve it more.
So, I guess it's just the painters interpretation and doesn't come from Michael.

This is a comissional work FOR Michael and there he's got his hand on the sword.
The illustrator is CĂ©line Lavail: http://www.celine-lavail.com/
