Archangel Michael Conquering the Devil, Coptic icon from 7th century, Athens Byzantine Museum

I would like to introduce to my readers this Coptic icon from the 17th century, Archangel Michael, from the Athens Byzantine Museum. It is simply beautiful. In its style it is different from that of modern iconography.
