Guardian Angel

egg tempera, gold leaf on wood

The Guardian Angel’s sole purpose, according to Orthodox tradition, is to help the individual recognize the Light, to help us approach that Light, and to preserve the Light given to us. The soul is represented by the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, in an innocent state. This state is the beginning of Trust.

This icon is often given to the parents of a newborn, but not exclusively.
