Saint Catherine the Great Martyr, of Alexandria, Enthroned - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-11330]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Catherine, the Great Martyr of Alexandria.

Saint Catherine was born in Alexandria, Egypt from a royal family and already at a young age she had a lot of knowledge. She converted to Christianity and performed great works in favor of Christians, which angered the pagans who ordered her imprisonment.

They tried to make her convert but not only did that not happen, but she managed to convince many about the True God.

After this, the Prefect was enraged and ordered the torture and beheading of Saint Catherine.


Apolytikion of Saint Catherine

Let us praise the most auspicious bride of Christ, the divine Katherine, protectress of Sinai, our aid and our help. For, she brilliantly silenced the eloquence of the impious by the sword of the spirit, and now, crowned as a martyr, she asks great mercy for all.


The Icon of Saint Catherine, the Great Martyr of Alexandria 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.
