The Descent of the Holy Spirit

The Descent of the Holy Spirit

A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon depicting the Descent of the Holy Spirit with Virgin Mary, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

The Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles of our Lord, Jesus Christ, took place on the Pentecost, the fiftieth day after the Resurrection. It is celebrated as the "Birthday of the Church".

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.

We can have any image or Christian scene hand made on commission. Please take a look at an indicative list of additional icons available, or contact us for more information.
