St Marina hammering the Devil Made to order byzantine icon egg tempera on wood


A representation of St Marina with a hammer based on a traditional icon of her -  In the pics we see the first drawing , the first step on the making of the icon a process that will take about a month to complete

The icon measures 33x23cm approx  and is 15mm thick. The icon   is painted by hand according to the rules of the old byzantine art of hagiography or else holy iconography. In this ancient technique we are using the egg tempera on a plastered wooden panel we made our selves. After painting, the icon is varnished (this one has the traditional mixture of wax and resin) to seal the colors and produce an artwork that will last

Additionally the icon comes carefully packaged as gift together with some mini extras from our shop
