This is an icon St Joanna, The Myrrhbearer.( Old french name Jehan) She was one of the women associated with the ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, often considered to be one of the disciples.Joanna is also among the women who went to prepare Jesus' body in Luke's account of the Resurrection, and who later told the apostles and other disciples about the empty tomb and words of the "two men in dazzling clothes". She is honoured as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church on the "Sunday of the Myrrhbearers", which is two Sundays after Pascha (Easter), and in the Roman Catholic Church on May 24. Also, derivatives of St Joanna are St. Jessica, St. Jennifer.

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE:
The icon is painted on wood panel with tempera on stucco canvas.I used gold leaf for the background and sealed the icon 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 of the wood panel are varnished with darker tone semi transparent varnish for a nice finish.

The icon measures 10x14inches and 1" thick. There is a hole on the back of the icon for hanging on the wall.

Please note: this icon is made when ordered. Allow up to a week for it to be made prior to shipping!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to commission a specific icon or scene you don't see in my shop, I will be glad to make it for you!
