The first man ever to be a killed for Christ. St Stephen the Martyr. This is a half figure painting of the saint holding a censer and a miniature church building.
The materials I used for the byzantine icon
- I made the painting with eggtempera on scraps of a wooden floor.
- The repurposed wood was specially cut, and prepared (with a hanger on the back)
- Eggtempera and copper gold were used for the surface
- While shellac and varnish have sealed the colors to produce an artifact that will last
The icon comes wrapped as a gift in its own hand made bag with some extras from our shop
