Prophet Saint Ezekiel byzantine icon antique styled egg tempera on a plywood 15x15-



The  byzantine icon of Prophet Saint Ezekiel painted on a square board measuring 15 cm (approx 6 ") on the side

The icon is painted with egg tempera in  gessoed plywood  panel The name of the prophet-- O profitis Iezekiel-, is written with red egg tempera on the top of the icon with medieval Greek characters. 

The scroll also writes in Greek Ezekiel  37:28 (Then the nations will know that I the LORD make Israel holy, when my sanctuary is among them forever.)

On this eggtempera piece a patina was created- like the one we see in antique icons. An organic dye was applied for the copperish color, then  shellac and finally  varnish had sealed the colours and produced an icon that will last.
