The Elevation of the Holy Cross

The Elevation of the Holy Cross

A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of the Elevation of the Holy Cross, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

The Elevation of the Holy Cross is one of the Great Feasts of the Orthodox Church, celebrated on September 14. This feast commemorates the finding of the Cross by the Empress Helen on Golgotha in 326 AD, the place where Christ was crucified, and the recovery of the Cross from the Persians in 630 AD.

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.
