Clone of Contemporary Byzantine icon Prophet Elias- biblical Elijah fed by the raven- Gods Providence religious art and holy iconography of Greece


 Holy Prophet Elias in the Mt Thabor where the Lord has ordered ravens to bring him food, one of my favourite representations of the old Testament, constantly remindind me that we live by and under God's  Providence.

A contemporary representation of the Saint based on an old fresco, with bold colours

The icon is a square measuring 20x20cm

Each of our icons is painted by hand according to the rules of the old byzantine art of hagiography or else holy iconography. In this ancient technique we are using the egg tempera on a plastered wooden panel we made our selves. After painting, the icon is varnished (this one has the traditional mixture of wax and resin) to seal the colors and produce an artwork that will last.

Additionally the icon comes tenderly protected in its individual bag, together with its instructions how to care for it, a little sachet of herbs from our garden in Crete -and our custom icon favors - Ready to be used as a gift
