This depiction of  Virgin Mary with a purple garment is a part of a larger synthesis depicting Her in Deisis icon. On each side the words Mother of God ('Mitir Theou") is written with red egg tempersa. 

Each of our icons is drawn according to the rules of the old byzantine art of hagiography or else holy iconography. In this technique we are using the traditional egg tempera (that we produce from a mixture of pigments, egg yolk and vinegar) a plastered  wooden panel and gold metal leaves. After painting, the icon is varnished (with a natural resin varnish) and then we leave it to dry for  several days to produce an artwork that will last.

Each piece comes tenderly and carefullly packaged with some mini extras from our shop- Perfect for a very personal and unique gift
