St Maximos the confessor a very influential Saint that lived his years in turbulent and hard times for our faith

The icon is painted with egg tempera in a medium sized 14x18 cm gessoed plywood (and 1 cm thick) panel. The name of the saint -- O agios Maximos-- a, is written with red egg tempera on the top of the icon with medieval Greek characters. 
On this eggtempera piece a patina was created- like the one we see in antique icons. An organic dye was applied for the copperish color, then  shellac and finally  varnish had sealed the colours and produced an icon that will last.

<3 Gift Wrapping: The icon is prepared as gifts with some little extras fer
