St. Michael the Archangel Enamel Pin

Saint Michael Archangel, about 1470Pedro Garcia de Banabarre

The archangel Michael, wearing a suit of studded armor, sits on a throne backed by elaborate blue and gold brocade. In this painting, Michael simultaneously enacts his two principal roles: weigher of souls on Judgement Day and destroyer of Satan. On the left, an angel embraces a soul, while on the right, Satan appears as a fantastic two-faced monster ready to capture another soul. Michael positions his lance over the monster.
