A beautiful reproduction of the Mt. Athos 15th century icon of Jesus Christ from the Monastery of Esphigmenou on Mt. Athos, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

The Esphigmenou Monastery in the monastic state of Mount Athos in Greece is dedicated to the Ascension of Christ. The monastery dates back to the 10th century, while tradition holds that the site had been used as a monastery since as early as the 5th century. It is the largest monastery on Mount Athos, with around a hundred monks.

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.
