The Icons of this special category are exact handmade copies and for this reason the dimensions are specific, the hooks for hanging on the wall are nails for horseshoes, while the nails on the periphery of the icons that hold the frame are different as were in the original icons.
The Themes are painted on canvas by experienced iconographers in the old traditional manner of Byzantine art. The wood is oak and comes from the Mount Athos area. The Icons are silver plated with special treatment to remain unchanged through the years. Some Icons have gilded details.
The openings of the faces, of the hands and of other details of the depicted Saints are done one by one with the hand. The halos are done similarly.

"...I just received the St. Irene icons that you sent me, and I just had to tell you that they are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I will definitely have to keep in mind this style of icon for when I purchase more icons from you in the future. Thank you very much for suggesting this style to me. I am very happy with them...."
