Saint Adamantine byzantine icon of one of the 40 virgins contemporary painting Saint Adamantia DIamanta religious art female saints



One of the 40 Virgins, St Adamantine or Adamantia. I like this long format of for the original icons- I believe they would make a perfect addition to an icon corner and a perfect very personal gift

The icon was painted with the eggtempera trechnique on a 15mm thick, specially prepared plywood panel that measures  approx 35 cm in height . The name of the Saint -- Aghia Adamantine-- is written on her left and right in greek, with eggtempera with byzantine characters.Shellac and resin varnish are added on top to seal the colours and produce a miniature icon 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 used as a gift
