Orthodox Icon of St Spyridon of Trimythous. The icon of the Venerated wonderworking Saint. He is wearing a shepherd’s straw hat to remind us that a simple shepherd as he, silenced the philosopher Arius. He broke a brick into his components (fire, water, earth). Right in front of all Church fathers when the brick burst into flames, water fell into the ground and the dust remained in his hands.
The icon of St Spyridon is painted, with the traditional egg tempera technique. The materials used are:
- A mixture of powder pigments egg yolk and vinegar on consequtive layers.
- The background is gilded with copper gold ( that has patina on, to acquire an antique look)
- The colors are sealed with two types of top coats.
On the back the icon comes with a hanger
