Handmade Byzantine Icon with Panagia the Life-giving Spring.
The miraculous story of Panagia the Life-giving Spring dates back to 450 AD. when the Byzantine soldier Leon met a blind man in a forest who asked him for water. After Leo's fruitless efforts to find water in the forest, a woman's voice was heard saying to him: "Leon, you don't have to worry, the water is right next to you".
The voice went on to say to him: "Give some of this water to the man to quench his thirst, and then smear his eyes with it so that you may know who the voice is that is talking to you."
Thus, Panagia presented water in front of Leon and gave the blind man his sight.
When, after years, Leon became King he erected in the place of the miraculous spring, a Temple dedicated to Panagia the Life-giving Spring, so that her miracles would continue.
The icon of Panagia the Life-giving Spring is an exact copy of Byzantine art and is created by experienced craftsmen using the method of gold printing where hagiographic leaves of 22 karat gold are applied in detail to decorate the background.
During the final processing, the icon is painted with dark red color around the perimeter and polished with a special varnish to maintain its shine.
It is offered in level or recessed wooden surface and is suitable for wall mounting.
