I particularly like a style of Archangel Michael's icons where he is depicted with dark colors.

I noticed that the store recommended offers 4 pages of Eastern Catholic books so is it an Eastern Catholic store then?
In my neighbourhood no real Orthodox store would carry such items for fear of confusing the Orthodox faithful.

I believe it is.  The icon looks Orthodox to me, though.  And we know for sure that it was originally painted by an eastern Christian iconographer, not some hippie new-age "christian" artist.  That's good enough for me  Wink

I also noticed that they have sections with icons of Melkite/Maronite, Coptic, and Western saints.  very interesting, since I LOVE Coptic icons Smiley

personally I would try to buy from stores owned by Eastern orthodox Christians and not eastern catholics whoblur the lines between orthodoxy 7 catholicism.
