St. Michael the Archangel (Deck)
Construction: All Motherboard skateboards are made from 100% American/Canadian Maple (wood species—Acer Saccharum) and are cold-pressed to ensure the wood is not subjected to high temperatures that can degrade wood fibers. The uncut decks are then allowed to cure for seven days before finishing. Each deck is made with skateboard specific glue made by Franklin.
Concave: Steep or mellow standard (8.0 only)
Width: 8 inches standard (7.5 – 8.5 custom)
Length: 31.5 inches
The artwork on the board undersides are custom illustrations made exclusively for Motherboards. They are designed specifically for imprinting on our board products. You will not find these illustrations anywhere else, they are truly unique copyrighted designs.* Each design also includes a somewhat hidden image of the front of the Miraculous Medal and the back of the Benedict medal. We think of these as our "secret deck weapons".
DIGITAL PRINTED TRANSFER:
The highest level of detail is achieved using the DPT process. Specialized coatings are used to bind the ink DIRECTLY to the skateboard deck. Our deck designs are bright, vibrant and iconic. It's a big uplift from most of the deck art out there.
Standard deck ships in 2 – 3 business days.
Please allow 3 – 4 weeks for custom deck production before shipping.
ICONOGRAPHY - ST MICHAEL DECK
St. Michael the Archangel, whose name means, “one who is like God,” led the army of angels who cast Satan and the rebellious angels into Hell.
St. Michael has four duties:
- To continue to wage battle against Satan and the other fallen angels;
- To save the souls of the faithful from the power of Satan especially at the hour of death;
- To protect the People of God, both the Jews of the Old Covenant and the Christians of the New Covenant; and
- Finally to lead the souls of the departed from this life and present them to our Lord for the particular judgment, and at the end of time, for the final judgment.
St. Michael also figures prominently in the Rite of Exorcism, particularly in the case of diabolical infestation of places.
For these reasons, Christian iconography depicts St. Michael as a knight-warrior, wearing battle armor, and wielding a sword or spear, while standing triumphantly on a serpent or other representation of Satan.
“St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle! Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who roam about the world seeking the ruin of souls.” (catholicstraightanswers.com)
