Handmade Byzantine Icon of the Baptism of Jesus Christ (also known as Epiphany) in the waters of the Jordan River.
Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist in the presence of the Holy Spirit who descended in the form of a dove. At the same time, the voice of God was heard saying "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
Since then, the Baptism of Christians symbolizes the new life with Jesus Christ.
The icon of the Baptism of Jesus Christ 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.
