Our Lady of Sorrows, hand-painted byzantine icon, egg tempera, 24k gold leaf
This icon depicts our lady of sorrows. The memory of our lady of sorrows calls us to relive the decisive moment in the history of salvation and to venerate the mother associated with the passion of her son and close to him raised on the cross.

Her motherhood takes on universal dimensions on calvary. The painting was created following the traditional techniques of byzantine iconography.

After gluing a cotton cloth on a wooden board, the primer is applied (composed of chalk, glue and water). The icon is painted using egg tempera, created with egg emulsion and natural powder pigments. The background was made with 24k gold, the icon was then painted with shellac to protect it over time. The icon size is 29 x 36 x 1,5 cm (11,5 x 14 x 0,5 in). If ordered on commission the size of the painting can vary according to your needs.

The process takes about 2 weeks. All my icons are made entirely by hand. A hand-painted icon is a splendid gift to make to loved ones on important occasions such as birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, baptisms and religious holidays. They can be a wonderful offer to a church. This item is made of glue and chalk, wood, canvas, egg tempera, gold, gold leaf, shellac, tempera.
