"Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid....O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? (Matthew 14 22:23 KJV)

Based on an older byzantine painting, this icon  describes this exact scene on the Gospel of Matthew where the Lord saves Peter from waves- A beautiful passage on the bible that teaches us so much about fear and faith.

Size 30x35 cm- Painted in a 21mm thick wooden panel 

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 ourselves. 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 given as a gift
