Hand painted byzantine icon, featuring the Mother of God holding infant Jesus, on a wood panel with raised frame, with soft colors on the garments and 24k gold plated halos around the Holly faces. The child Jesus holds a scroll with the Golden Rule written in ancient Greek words that say “Treat others as you want them to treat you”.

This traditional Virgin Mary icon with Jesus is generally considered to be the holiest and most revealed symbol of Christian faith. This sacred icon that penetrates the soul, will make the most precious religious piece of art in a bishop ‘s conference room or in a gallery, as well as a great gift for a holly icons’ collector. It would also become a special consecration to the church and a perfect sign of attention on any religious occasion.

☧ PROCEDURE: First of all I prepare the wood with special materials so I can carefully sketch the figure on it. After that I start painting the basic colors and later on I come back many times with my various brush sizes to end up to the concrete details of the Holy faces. This icon is made according to the traditional old art of byzantine iconography where the image is painted on wood or canvas, with egg tempera (egg yolk, vinegar, color in dust) and gold metal leaves. After painted, it is varnished so it is preserved through time. My aim is to draw friendly and merciful holy faces so that their gentleness inspires somebody to pray and hope.
