A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of the Dormition of Virgin Mary, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.
The Dormition of the Mother of God is a Great Feast which commemorates the "falling asleep" or death of Mary, and her bodily resurrection before being taken up into heaven. It is celebrated on August 15.
Made using traditional materials (selected aged timber frames, egg tempera, 24K gold leaf, natural powder paint and varnishes) and old techniques. It is an exact reproduction of an antique Byzantine masterpiece.
The icon bears the artist's signature on the front and the certificate of authenticity on the back.
