Saint Theodore the Tyro, the Recruit- Byzantine icon of the Great Martyr -Military saints of Orthodoxy Greek religious art icons iconography
Holy Great Martyr Theodore the Recruit or better known as of Teron (tyro)- Eastern orthodox christians celebrate his feast also at the First Saturday of the Great Lent -after a miracle of His performed the same day- The colors in this icon are bold, the Saint is a young Military saint, "an Athlete of Christ" The icon measures 22x 28 cm (a slightly different than an A4 page) Each of our icons is painted by hand according to the rules of the old byzantine art of hagiography or else holy iconography. In this ancient technique we are using the egg tempera on a plastered wooden panel we made our selves . Additionally the icon's backgroumd is guilded with copper gold something that will eventually, through time give a gracefull antique patina to the painting. After painting, the icon is varnished (this one has the traditional mixture of wax and resin) to seal the colors and produce an artwork that will last. <3 Gift Wrapping: The OOAK is covered in felt, in its handmade bag faor;y protected and perfect for gift wrapping.
