A beautiful icon of Salus Populi Romani
, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer. Salus Populi Romani
, meaning Protectress (literally salvation or health of the Roman People) is the title given in the 19th century to the Byzantine icon of the Madonna and Child, reputed to date to Early Christian times, in the Borghese or Pauline Chapel of the Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica in Rome.
Made using traditional materials (selected aged timber frames, egg tempera, 24K gold leaf, natural powder paint and varnishes) and old techniques.
The icon bears the artist's signature on the front and the certificate of authenticity on the back.
