Engraved Lithography with Saint Marina

Saint Marina is one of the most popular saints not only in the Eastern Church but also in the West. The Holy Great Martyr Marina was born in Asia Minor, in the city of Antioch of Pisidia, into the family of a pagan priest. In infancy she lost her mother and her father gave her into the care of a nursemaid, who raised Marina in the Orthodox Faith. The governor Olymbrios, charmed with the beautiful girl, tried to persuade her to renounce the Christian Faith and become his wife. But the saint refused his offers. The vexed governor gave the holy martyr over to torture. Having beaten her fiercely, they fastened the saint with nails to a board and decapitated her.

Engraved Lithography: Characteristics

A wonderful icon, which has been created with the technique of lithography and is upgraded in quality and aesthetics thanks to the engraved natural wood, but also the gold leaf, which is used in the background of the representation. The technique of lithography is very widespread and is taught in the iconography workshops of Mount Athos, while at the same time it is used by several monks to create exceptional works of art. At this icon the monk used a lithographic copy of Byzantine art to create this artwork, while it is worth mentioning that the natural wood of the icon is worked exclusively by hand.
