St. Michael the Archangel

Circa 2009
Pasteboard and poster paint
Santa Fe Plaza, Santa Fe, NM

The iconography of St. Michael is still in evidence in this 21st-century poster. With one hand the archangel wields his sword against the old dragon Satan. With the other he holds the scales to be used at the Last Judgment.

The poster was prepared for a religious festival that was held in Santa Fe on September 4, 2009.
