This icon of the Holy and Glorious Martyr Paraskevi has been crafted in the workshop of father Peukis. Famous hagiographer and former student of the Athonite Academy on Mount Athos, father Pefkis paints with faith in the principles of the genuine Byzantine art.
In this specific hagiography, Saint Paraskevi has been painted on carved wood. She is portrayed modest and beautiful while the picture speaks for her wisdom, courage and clarity of spirit. She miracously healed the emperor Antoninus , who was blinded and therefore she is depicted holding a pair of eyes. She is the patron Saint of eyes, eye problems and blindness.
The icon has been coated with pure beeswax in order to be protected from the ravages of time.
