If you’re looking for a way to incorporate your faith into your home or to give a meaningful gift to a fellow believer, consider investing in hand-painted religious icons. These icons are available in a variety of styles, from Byzantine icons to Greek Orthodox icons, and depict a range of subjects, including Catholic saints and Orthodox Christian figures.
Catholic icons and Church icons can serve as powerful reminders of the love and compassion that underpin the Catholic faith. Meanwhile, Orthodox icons often feature intricate, highly symbolic imagery that reflects the deep spirituality of the Orthodox Christian tradition.
When it comes to giving religious icons as gifts, consider the recipient’s faith and personal preferences. A Greek Orthodox icon may be the perfect gift for a friend or family member who practices Orthodox Christianity, while a Byzantine icon may be more appropriate for someone who appreciates the intricate details and rich symbolism of this style of religious art.
One example of a Catholic saint whose image is frequently depicted in religious icons is Ioan Suciu, a Romanian bishop who was imprisoned and martyred during the Communist era. His icon can serve as an inspiring reminder of the courage and faithfulness of those who have suffered for their beliefs.
So if you’re looking for a way to incorporate religious art into your home or to give a meaningful gift to a loved one, consider investing in hand-painted Catholic icons, Church icons, or Orthodox icons today.
This handmade icon is made in following the ancient and traditional manner incorporating new technologies.
The hand-crafted board is decorated with marquetry on the back side. From there, real 23.3 karat gold is hand-leafed across the background of the icon over the raised gesso ornaments. A less expensive metal leaf instead of gold is also available optionally. Lastly, the icon is replicated straight onto the board over the gold leaf with special UV paint that will not bleach even under direct sunlight. Then, also, artistic touches are made with the artist’s brush in such details as highlights, outlines, and borderline. Each icon is coated with damar varnish, and after drying, it is properly packed in a custom handcrafted velour pouch, wooden gift box, and additional box for shipping. We care that the holy image of your favorite saint is of high quality and can be kept in your family for generations to come.
May it be a blessing and truly a “window into heaven” for you.
