Byzantine icon of Sts Natalia and Adrian of Nicomedia orthodox couple saints christian art and iconography



A hand painted byzantine icon with St Natalia as a pair with her husband St Handrian painted on a piece of plywood that measures approx 17x21 and is 15mm thick

All of our icons are created following the centuries old tradition. A piece of plywood is being prepared with gesso (lefkas) to make a white surface for the color layers to be applied on. The medium is egg-tempera a mixture of egg and powder pigments. Finally 2 coats of varnishes are added  to seal the colours

The icon comes carefully wrapped in its own fabric bag, assorted with some mini extras from our shop
