An exquisite Greek Orthodox Icon of St. Catherine the Martyr, handmade & handpainted by an expert Greek hagiographer.
St. Catherine of Alexandria was a virgin, who was martyred in the early 4th century at the hands of the pagan emperor Maxentius. She was both a princess and a noted scholar, who became a Christian around the age of fourteen, and herself converted hundreds of people to Christianity.
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
