--------------------------A story about St. Spiridon-----------------------------------------
St. Spyridon is the Orthodox Saint who is the go-to guy for your livestock, especially the goats. I ask for his prayers about my goats all the time, but especially during kidding season. This icon is my way of thanking him for the help and protection he has given our herd and also the equines and the new rabbits and other farm animals. An interesting story makes me see him as having an interest in helping us with our horses, and possibly our general transportation as well. He was on his way to the ecumenical council, where he was needed to debate against a heresy. His political opponents played a dirty trick, beheading their horses one night. No fear, as Saint Spyridon asked his servant to simply stick the horses' heads back on. The discombobulated servant botched the job, and so they startled the saints' enemies and others with their new "ride." The white horse had a black head, and the black horse had a white head. Look for an icon of this soon. Icelandics sometimes come with this color pattern, so the Icelandic horses in my icon will probably not look strange to Icelandic owners at all.

--------------------------------------------About the Icon---------------------------------------------------
This entire icon was drawn on the board freehand. It is a watercolor with archival Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens. I apply them and also paint the colors with a brush. The board is 1/8 " thick. It may be propped up on an easel, shelf, or hung in another way you choose. It does not come with a way to hang it, so I prop it up to display it. It is painted on the sides in red, which is traditionally done to keep out evil spirits, and we all could use less of those around, right? I am not sure if that also works on evil people, as none have come around to test it. But that in itself is also a good thing...

There is FREE US shipping, and I will consider each intn'l request for shipping. Please see the store policies for more info.
