Saint Amphilochios of Patmos- Icon of Elder Amfilochios makris contemporary byzantine art by angelicon



The Elder Amphilochios Makris of Patmos a newly canonised orthodox Saint whose work and spiritual teachings are showing us the role of Orthodoxy today in modern society

A contemporary byzantine icon of a "Greek" Saints (I put it into quotes because saints belong to everybody) in a "greekislands" background

The icon measures in size 14x18 cm and is painted on a specially prepared 10 mm thick plywood

Each of our icons is drawn according to the rules of the old byzantine art of hagiography. After painting, the icon is varnished (with a natural resin varnish) and then we leave it dry for a few days. Copper gold that is applied on the background would eventually acquire a sort of an antique patina, something that would make the icon even more beautiful

<3 Gift Wrapping: The icon is complemented with its handmade fabric bag and some extras from our shop that make a unique and very personal gift.
