Description

In the Orthodox iconography the halo, which in this specific hagiography has been crafted with the «tsoukani» technique, i.e. the pure gold is carved with «tsoukani», discloses the sense of glory that the depicted person radiates.

It surrounds the head, because this is the center of the spirit, thought and mentality. The martyr, Saint Panteleimon is depicted frontally and from the waist up, holding his medical tools. He is wearing a bluish tunic and a red cloak that is decorated with gold on the neck. On the right and left side of the Saint, in the background made of pure gold, the red sign writes: SAINT PANTELEIMON.

With his right hand he is holding forceps while with his left one a small wooden box. His rich curly hair is similar to St. George’s. Professor George Sidiropoulos uses the technique of the Cretan school while working with color and egg powder. It is a unique work of Byzantine art has been created after ordering.
