The name of St Patrick means "high-born", from the latin "Patricius". He was born around 390 in Scotland. Captured and brought to Ireland as a slave, he escaped and returned home. Later, he returned to Ireland, bringing Christianity to its people. His feast day is March 17.
Saint Patrick is most often recognized for likening the Trinity to a shamrock, illustrating that the shamrock has three parts, and yet is one; in a similar way, the Trinity has three persons, and is still one God.

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE:
This miniature icon is painted on ceramic tile found by the Aegean Sea in Turkey. The tile piece is unique and naturally smooth shaped by the sea waves. I applied stucco canvas before painting the image with tempera paints and gold leaf. The image was sealed with glossy finish so it is protected and safe to be cleaned. St Patrick's name is written on the back. There is hole on top so you can use the icon as a pendant, hang it on a wall or anywhere in your home as decoration.
No two miniature icons are alike, each is unique and painted with great care to make a treasured gift for yourself, your home or a loved one.

The icon measures approx: 2 inches long and a tad over 1 wide (5.5x3cm)
It comes in a beautiful gift box and is ready for gift giving.
(Gift boxes may vary in style from the one on the pictures)
Message me if you want your icon made into pendant necklace with clasp closure!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to commission a specific icon that you don't see in my shop.
