Artist's description:

In a trip of mine in a Greek mountain village called “Koutsi”, there was a very old abandoned house. Immediately when I saw this house I was impressed by the very thick old shutter hanging out of the window. It seemed that this piece of wood was waiting for me. So I took this shutter and I cut it in two similar pieces. I burn it to the fireplace in order all the insects to be removed. Then I prepared these 2 pieces according to the traditional byzantine technique (egg tempera, gold leaves) and I painted 2 icons. (Saint Irini and Saint Ioannis). Also due to the unique technique and the old wood, the icons seem to be very old. The broken points of the wood complete this image.

Materials used:

wood,egg tempera,golden leaves

Saint Irini
