Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors, merchants, children, and students. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus, whose English name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas.
The historical Saint Nicholas is remembered and known in both the Catholic and Orthodox Christians. He is also honored by various Anglican and Lutheran churches.

This is my artistic interpretation on St Nicholas iconic image.

THE TECHNIQUE:
The icon is painted on a handmade wood panel with tempera on stucco canvas. I used gold leaf for the halo of St Nicholas and gold tempera paint for the background. 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 is varnished with darker tone semi transparent varnish for a nice finish.
This icon measures 4 by 3 inches, 1 inches thick (10x 8x 2,2cm)

Please do not hesitate to conact me with any inquires you may have, I welcome custom orders and I will gladly answer you questions.
Thank you!
