A custom listing for  the icon of  Faith Hope and Love painting

The  images we see will be the base for the hand painted with the traditional egg tempera technique byzantine icon. The final piece will be similar but it can never be identical- After all, every brush stroke is unique

The piece has approx 25 cmm width. It comes with a triangular metal hanger- so - The the three of them  would look like is like sitting, looking on us upon a cloud-

The painting is based on my memory, of the paintings (linotypes mostly) decorating traditional homes. One of them most characterics is the one with three little girls , Pistis Elpis and Agapi with the symbols of the Cross (Faith - Pistis) the Anchor (Elpis Hope ) and the Heart (for Agape Love)-  A Folk Religious piece and on 1st Cprinthians : "If I speak in the tongues[ of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,but do not have love, I gain nothing..... And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
