Description

Saint Lydia is known from the book the Acts of the Apostles and the incident of the baptism of the Apostle Paul in Philippi of ancient Macedonia, immediately after his arrival in the city. As an example of genuine faith she was officially recognized by the western Church as a Saint in the 16th century and the Eastern Orthodox Church in 1972. Saint Lydia is commemorated on May 20, reminding to all of us the words written in the open scroll that is she holding with her left hand: go and preach the gospel to every creature.

This elaborate work has been crafted with the method of the quality silk-screen printing on a canvas, against a gold leaf background and has been carved on natural wood. It is a work of the Byzantine hagiography workshop of Father Peukis where he continues until today to teach to young people and practice the sacred art of iconography as it was taught to himself on Mount Athos.
