Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saints George and Demetrios.
Saint George came from Cappadocia and was a member of the Roman Army. He showed great boldness and courage and for this, he gained the attention of the Emperor Diocletian, but he could not escape the persecutions that Christians faced in those years. Saint George did not deny his faith and was sentenced to beheading.
Saint Demetrios came from Thessaloniki and was a centurion in the Roman Army. Despite the fear of persecution, he became a Christian and was imprisoned under the rule of Emperor Diocletian.
The Icon of Saints George and Demetrios 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.
