Description

This handmade work of Byzantine art, created by the hagiography school Panselinos, was painted on natural wood with tempera and natural powder coating colors. It has been polished with 22K pure gold and has been adorned with a halo created with the «tsoukani» technique.

The blessing bishop of Myra is depicted wearing his liturgical vestment. The bluish scapular symbolizes the lost sheep that has been saved by Christ, which the bishops always wear on their shoulders. His large and carved forehead symbolizes his wisdom and refers to the great theological action of the Saint, when in the First Ecumenical Council he fought the heresy of Arianism.

The iconography leads to the transcendence of the icon in a state beyond symbols and imagery. It is the fruit of the Incarnation of the Word of God, a guide to the deification of the human being. Each line in this totally handmade work, interprets the Orthodox theology. The memory of the Saint is honored by the Church on the 6th of December.
