St John the Baptist -A hermit with a rough face and messy hair represented with wings as the Angel on Earth. The colors that I ve used are bright and complementary (red and green)

 The name St. John the Forerunner "Agios Ioannis o Prodromos"  is written with red egg tempera in medieval Greek characters on his left and right side. On this eggtempera piece copper gold were applied on the background.  Shellac and resin varnish have followed to seal the colours and produce an icon that will last.
