The carved paintings embody a particular technique, as the icons are painted on canvas and natural carved wood, with gold leaf background. Vivid and bright colors and decorative elements present illuminate the figures of the Saints. All carved paintings are coated with pure beeswax to protect them from damage. All bear the hallmark of their iconographer that faithfully follows the tradition of Mount Athos, with absolute adherence to traditional styles and methods of Byzantine art.
