A custom order for the original icon of St Sophia and her daughters- A made to order pice on the basis of an older work of mine- ***The icon would be as the icon pictured but not exactly the same- after all every brush stroke is different

Whoever reads the historical account of this family can see-  Incredible faith, hope and love (Pistis Elpis Agape) in action as a friend says - There was also the influence of 1st corinthians (...And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.)  made me imagining  them as nesting dolls,one connected with each other, containing each other and at the center: Agape, - Love,  at the core of all

For the icon board a piece of plywood  was specially treated with gesso. The white smooth surface will be painted with egg-tempera and sealed with organic and resin varnish to make an artifact that will last for long. The names of the Saints are written inside ther copper gold haloes (like medallions). Size: The  icon measures 40x20cm approx and is 15mm thick

I need about a week to finish the color and top coats- Then the icon will still have to remain one week more to dry completely- Shipping times deoend on destination

The icon comes with the adequate gift wrapping and some little extras from our shop
