Michael is the Archangel of the first ray of protection, faith and the will of God. He is the Prince of the Archangels and of the Angelic Hosts, the Defender of the Faith, the Angel of Deliverance and his divine complement is Archeia Faith. The Book of Daniel calls him “the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people”. Saint Michael Fighting the Dragon is a part of the Apocalypse series, illustrating the Book of Apocalypse or Revelation of St. John. “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the Dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven”. As recounted by the Revelation of Saint John, at the end of the world, war will break out between Heaven and Hell, between Good and Evil.
As the commander of the Army of God, Archangel Michael leads the other angels in the fight against evil, represented in this statue by a dragon head. In Dürer’s original painting the Dragon has 7 heads. Each of the dragon’s heads represents one of the Seven Deadly Sins, (pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth). Dürer chose to capture this fight between good and evil at the moment when Saint Michael is thrusting his spear into one of the heads. Surrounding Saint Michael are three other angels ready to attack. Beneath the fighting lies a calm and serene landscape with mountains and a small town, highlighted by a church with a tall spire, in the distance. At the bottom in the center of the page Dürer has placed his distinctive “AD” monogram that is in all of his engravings. Albrecht Dürer considered printmaking to be one of the most important art forms, possibly even equal to the art of painting. His technical skill is well demonstrated in Saint Michael Fighting the Dragon. Saint Michael Warrior Archangel Slaying The Evil Dragon Statue measures: 6 inches / 15 cm x 4 inches / 10 cm x 10.5 inches / 26.5 cm.
