St Joanna, The Myrrhbearer.( Old french name Jehan) 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 slive with its natural rough edges 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 comes with a mini easel for easy display.

The icon measures 8" long (19.7m), 6" wide (14.8cm) and 1" thick (2.5cm). There is a hole on the back of the icon for hanging on the wall.
