If you looking for a unique birthday gift, wedding gift, special gift these hand painted orthodox icon "The the birth of Jesus Christ" is for you.

100% Hand-Painted on Wood. I use gessoed pine or lime wood panels for a base of my icons. Following the Byzantine Art traditions, every icon is layered with a linen cloth, glued and hand sanded to a smooth finish. Painted using traditional egg tempera , gold leaf (vark, varak) and covered with protective varnish (primer) on top. The back side of the icon is darkened for a stylish look. The protection layer guarantees waterproof and long lasting with no change in color and shape. Nice addition to your icon collection that will last for generations to come.
