A representation of St Francis of Assisi on olive wood. A catholic saint and a mystic. I like the uneven shapes of wood branches that create shapes and figures to be painted. I used of an olive wood branch to represent the little Cherubim.
- I used eggtempera as a medium. This technique creates volume basically with thin layers of color being applied on top on each.
- The name (St Frances is written on the back)
- I varnished the piece to produce an icon that lasts.
- Each piece has a hanger on the back and the can be at the same level with the other or at a totally different one.
Finally the icon comes packaged as a gift with little extras from our shop.
