St Michael

St Michael (after Raphael)
Oil on canvas, 
12.5 x 12.5 cm

St Michael is an aspect of the Self, who drives away negativity from the Ida Nadi (left/lunar channel of the subtle body). Those suffering from mental problems, lethargy, or chronic disease can invoke His aid. In the work by Raphael (a detail of which inspired this painting) St Michael is depicted slaying a dragon, representing the impure desires that can affect the left side.
