Handmade icon performed in classic Byzantine technique on plastered, wooden panel with egg tempera, golden metal leaf and varnished after it is dried. These are finished (the first two) and unfinished icons, just to see how they are made.

The icon you purchase from this shop is durable to last generations. Your hand painted Byzantine icons are accomplished with close attention to detail. They are perfect for gifts such as a marriage present, or anniversary, baptisms, for a Godparent or Godchild, birthday's, etc.

Besides their religious purpose, icons should be seen and understood as particular works of art due to the extremely complex execution technique they require. From this reason, today there are many prints available commercially, however they will not succeed to replace the beauty of an original icon.

This listing is for a MADE TO ORDER ORIGINAL painting. I will paint your icon in a SIMILAR manner (not a replica).
Order today the icon you wish (Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ or any Saint) in any size and send your request. Upon agreement you will purchase the icon, using your etsy account, and transfer the payment. Soon after your hand painted icon can be yours. Once your purchase is processed, I will start your icon right away and will require about 2-3 days to complete and 3-4 days for drying time. Please do not purchase unless you accept this.
Before sending the ICON to you, I will take some photos of it, to see the final artwork. I do my best to take realistic pictures, using daylight and computer processing so the photos are as similar as possible to the reality. However, it is obvious that slight differences will still exist.

♥ The icon board measures 2.7 x 2.1 inch (7 x 5.5 cm) - 15 euro

♥ Also Available in

3.9 x 3.1 inch (10 x 8.6 cm) - 30 euro
