Description

This icon depicts the scene of Christ's Baptism by John The Baptist.
Feast day, according Gregorian Calendar: 6th of January

In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius (14-37 AD. R. Chr.) In the Jordanian desert St. John the Baptist вас preaching - the last Old Testament prophet who proclaimed that the kingdom of heaven is approaching that awaited Messiah coming, and that it needs repentance. Those who confessed their sins, were baptized in the river Yordan. Before begining of his public sermon, the Lord Jesus Christ also went to be baptized by St. John the Baptist. According to the gospel the Saviour was then about thirty years old (Lk. 3:23), and according to tradition this happened 6 January. In memory of this event, the Church established the Feast of Baptism of the Lord, or Epiphany.

THE TECHNIQUE:I made this small icon with lots of miniature details on a wood panel after applying a stucco canvas. I used tempera paint for the figures and gold leaf for the halos and the background. The surface of the icon is varnished with couple of layers to assure a long lasting image and to make it easy and safe to clean it from dust. The back and the sides are stained in darker color.
MEASUREMENTS: 7 2/3 inches by 5 inches long (19.7x12.3cm) and approx 1 inch thick (1.9cm)

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.

    This icon was a custom order for the Badaliya and Peace Islands monthly interfaith prayer gathering at Saint Paul Roman Catholic Church, Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA, USA. Icons art was also commissioned by our parish to write five icons for the renovation of our Chapel of the Women Doctors of the Church. Those five icons were, St Hildegard von Bingen, St Catherine of Siena, St Theresa of Avila, St Therese of Lisieux, and Our Lady Seat of Wisdom. We are thrilled with all of these icons and recommend iconsart and Agnessa to any church or prayer group looking to commission a custom design icon for their worship space. Agnessa is very easy to work with and carefully collaborated with us on the final design of all of these icons. The best method is to send images of your design ideas, and she will work with you from there.

    Absolutely beautiful icon. I could not more highly recommend this artist if you are looking for an icon. She worked with us the whole way through, the icon was finished very quickly, and my daughter loved her confirmation gift. Thank you for helping us celebrate this holy event.
