A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of Madonna Donskaja handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer. The original icon was painted at the end of the 14th century by the famous painter Theophanes the Greek. According to legend this sacred image of the Don Cossacks was brought in during the fighting on the battlefield of Koelikovo in 1380 against the Tartars, which is said to have led to the victory of the Grand Duke Dimitri.
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.
