St Barbara Hand Painted Religious Icon of the Female saint and Martyr - Byzantine Icons Art and Iconography made in Greece


St Barbara, patron of the artillery and a very popular Saint painted traditionally as a young female martyr. The colors used are blue red and white, a very powerful and beautiful combination

Its size is 30 cm in height and 15 mm thick.

The plywood panel was covered with cotton and then with gesso that was thoroughly sandpapered. The painting was executed with egg tempera. The halo is gilded with copper gold, something that will eventually add an antique copperish patina to the painting. Finally, the colors are sealed with shellac and resin varnish, to create a spiritual artifact that will last.
