Archangel Michael

Archangel Michael
Hans Memling ca. 1433 – 1494
oil on panel (41 × 16 cm) — 1480

Revelation 12:7 - And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels

This used to be the right wing of a triptych. The center panel probably showed a pietà by Rogier van der Weyden; Memling painted the wings.

Michael, protector of Israel, is usually depicted holding a sword.
