Description

Engraved icon with Saint Luke

This is an icon with Saint Lukas, a doctor who was declared a Saint in 1996. He was born in Kerch of Crimaia and grew up in Kiev, where along with his general studies he also studied Painting and Medicine, specializing on surgery. After the death of his wife, he became a priest and was exiled in Siberia. In 1920 he was elected Professor of Topographic Anatomy and Surgery at the University of Tashkent. His research on the issue of purulent infections were innovative and he wrote the manual still used today. He was arrested multiple times and was brutally tortured. He slept in Simferopol after having served as an Archbishop and doctor selflessly and with sacrificial love. Throughout the last nine years of his life he was blind from glaucoma, but in this also he showed Job-like patience.

Engraved icon: Characteristics

The icon with the representation of Saint Luke has been crafted in the workshop of Byzantine art of Father Pefkis and bears his signature, which also means the authenticity of this copy. The Byzantine workshop of Father Pefkis, since 1980, deals with the production of copies of portable images of the Byzantine and post-Byzantine period. This beautiful icon is painted on canvas with excellent quality materials and the iconographer used natural wood. It is obvious that the iconographer follows until the last detail the standards of Byzantine art and he is also using colours processed mainly with egg and other traditional material.
