A custom order for a rare Icon where Jacob wrestles with the Angel (or God?).
The materials for the byzantine icon are the following:
- A specially prepared plywood panel 25×40 cm approx and 10mm thick
- Egg tempera.
- Copper gold and color for the background (that will eventually acquire an antique copperish look)
- Varnish and shellac
- A hanger on the back
- Gift packaging
The paintings will be executed with the traditional Eggtempera technique, and then sealed with varnish to create a piece that will last for long. The time needed for the completion of the order is one month. Pictures will be send at the beginning and the end of the painting process.
