Description

Engraved serigraph with Saint Nectarios

An icon with Saint Nectarios of Aegina who was officially recognized as a Saint by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople in 1961. His Feast Day is celebrated every year on 9 November. At the age of 14, he moved to Constantinople to work and further his education. In 1866, at age 20, he moved to the island of Chios to take a teaching post.

On November 7, 1876, he became a monk, at the age 30, in the Monastery of Nea Moni, for he had long wished to embrace the ascetic life. In December 1908, at the age of 62, St. Nectarios resigned from his post as school director and withdrew to the Holy Trinity Convent on Aegina, where he lived out the rest of his life as a monk. He wrote, published, preached, and heard confessions. He also tended the gardens, carried stones, and helped with the construction of the monastery buildings that were built with his own funds.

Engraved serigraph: Characteristics

At this icon with the representation of Saint Nectarios we can see 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. The surface of this icon is coated with pure beeswax so that the icon maintains the vividness of the colours. This icon has been crafted in the workshop of Byzantine art of Father Pefkis and bears his signature, which also means the authenticity of this copy. This beautiful icon is painted on canvas with excellent quality materials. The Byzantine workshop of Father Pefkis, since 1980, deals with the production of copies of portable images of the Byzantine and post-Byzantine period.
