A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of St. Elias the Prophet, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

Elias was a famous prophet and a wonder-worker in the northern kingdom of Israel during the 9th century BC. In Greece, chapels and monasteries dedicated to Prophet Elias are often found on mountaintops, which themselves are often named after him. His feast day is on July 20.

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.

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.
