St Anna of Novgorod Ingegerd Olofsdotter of Sweden orthodox Saint, christian art mini home shrine original painting female saints

Share:

St Anna, a princess in Novgorod (Ingegerd Olofsdotter of Sweden) and a nun that had taken the name of the foremother of God . A contemporary piece of religious art based on the tradition of the byzantine iconography. I used the same shape of the hood, for the churches and as few colors as passible: basically red yellow and blue


The icon is painted with egg tempera in small gessoed wooden panel with size:
19 x 7 cm approx

The icon is hand painted with the traditional egg tempera technique. The name of the Saint is written on the background. In the end shellac and resin varnish was applied

<3 Gift Wrapping: The miniature is complemented with its handmade bag and little assortments from our shop- Ready to be given as a very personal unique gift
