St. Catherine the Martyr

St. Catherine the Martyr

A unique Byzantine icon, handmade & handcarved by hagiographers on Mt. Athos, the Land of Orthodoxy. There, the monks who have dedicated their lives and their souls to God are creating monumental works of art, preserving the antique Byzantine art of hagiography.

This is an exact reproduction of an antique Byzantine icon of St. Catherine the Martyr, preserved in one of the Monasteries of Mt. Athos in Northern Greece.

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.

The icon is handmade to order, it bears the Seal of Authenticity on the back and is signed and numbered by the artist.
