Description

Icon with polished gold with Saint Seraphim of Sarov

Saint Seraphim of Sarov was born in 1759 in the city of Kursk in Russia and when he was 18 years old he decided to dedicate his life to God and become a monk in the monastery of Sarov and later was ordained a deacon. During the day he follows all the regulations of the monastery, but at night he leaves in the forest, at his deserted cell, where he spends his hours in prayer.

Many people came to the monastery to confess and many miracles have been recorded by patients. In 1833 AD after having taken the Holy Communion and after the end of the Divine Liturgy he asked for forgiveness from all his brothers. A little later they found him kneeling in a prayer position in front of the icon of the Virgin Mary, with the cross on his neck and his hands on his chest in the shape of a cross. He died there.

Unique icon of Βyzantine art: Characteristics

An icon crafted by hand with gold leaf of 22 K. This is a work of art which obeys to the standards of Byzantine art from the colours of the icon to the style that was used by the famous iconographer George Sidiropoulos. At this particular icon he used polished gold, a technique that gives a flawless aesthetic effect. This is an icon with polished gold in order to maintain the brightness and the vividness of the iconography. The processing of the gold has created a smooth surface which in combination with the style of the icon has given us a collectible icon. The artwork has been executed with particular mastery by professor George Sidiropoulos who used a technique that gives an exceptional aesthetic effect.
