|Hand painted icons on gesso panel, using 23ct. gold leaf, egg tempera , and natural powdered pigments.|
From the early centuries, images of holy people of the Christian faith have been depicted in a unique way through iconography. Icons are not intended to be portraits or realistic images. Rather, they symbolically and stylistically represent holy persons, who in death have been transfigured and are seen as in the spiritual state. Traditionally, icons are said to be written... because they tell in color and image what Scripture tells in text.
