Saint Michael the Archangel is an artwork belonging to Claudia Ciotti’s collection.

Saint Michael the Archangel, appears in all his beauty and plasticity of the pose. He is in the classic fourteenth-century version, when it crushes the devil.
The technique is painting on refractory clay. The wise use of enamels makes the armor sparkling. Furthermore, the pure gold background enhances it even more. While realizing the Angel, there are two antithetical behaviors. First of all the lightness, with which he holds the balance, is a sign of evaluation of the souls of men. Then the strength with which he keeps the devil crushed to hit him with his spear. His face hides all emotions, it does not show anger or desire for revenge. Here, the artist transfers all these aspects to the watcher. She maintains her executive originality, without copying an ancient work. So, the interpretative power is high and improved thanks to the sensitivity of the artist. She wants to propose works that contemporary public can only find in museums. But there, they are sometimes, almost forgotten. Claudia Ciotti realized this artwork on a overglaze ceramic painted entirely by hand. The surface is a refractory plate, with ceramic oxides and finish in opaque and shiny gold.The work is in a carved wooden frame, handcrafted with plaster and Armenian bole and covered completely by hand with gold sequin leaf.
