Description

Icon with Saint Spyridon

At this particular flat icon there is the representation of Saint Spyridon who was born in 270 AD, in Cyprus from a wealthy family of shepherds. He worked as a shepherd and was known for his great piety. He married and had one daughter, Irene but after the death of his wife, Spyridon entered a monastery. He became Bishop of Trimythous and he took part in the first Ecumenical council and the miracles he has done are infinite. He is the Protector of Corfu, where his relics are kept. It is said that when the Arabs took Cyprus, Spyridon’s body was disinterred and taken to Constantinople. The relics were found to be incorrupt and contained a sprig of basil both of which were taken as a sign of divine confirmation of his sanctity.

Flat icon: Characteristics

This is an icon which is crafted with the method of silk screen painting. The iconographer used until the last detail the standards of Byzantine style with the vivid colours which are made with traditional materials such as eggs. This is a collectible icon from the workshop of father Pefkis for whom every icon is crafted with a sense of responsibility and with absolute dedication to the traditional techniques. The colors are processed mainly with egg and other traditional material and the surface is covered with a pure beeswax to keep it intact from the passage of time with bright colors.
