St. Barbara

St. Barbara

An exquisite Greek Orthodox Icon of St. Barbara, handmade & handpainted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

Saint Barbara, Feast Day December 4, known as the Great Martyr Barbara, was an early Christian saint and martyr of the 3rd century in Nicomedia, present-site Turkey. She is the patron saint of artillerymen, military engineers and miners.

Made using traditional materials (selected aged timber frames, egg tempera, 24K gold leaf, natural powder paint and varnishes) and old techniques, this icon is an exact reproduction of an antique Byzantine masterpiece.

The icon bears the artist's signature on the front and the seal 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.
