Description

In well-prepared wood and gold background, Saint John the Baptist is depicted. The entire execution is considered excellent, since the artist-iconographer with great skill attributes the ascetic face and the disheveled, from the hardships of the desert, wild hair and beard of the Great Saint of the Greek Orthodoxy, always based on older standards.

The artwork has been executed with particular mastery by professor George Sidiropoulos while the gold background is adorned with gold leaf and has been carved with the use of the «tsoukani» technique.  It has been extra polished in order for its colour to remain unchanged over the passage of time.
