Saint Andrew the Apostle, the First-Called - Hand Painted Icon

[Model: HND_st-8986]

Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint Andrew the Apostle, the First-Called.


Saint Andrew the Apostle was one of the Twelve Apostles and brother of the Saint Peter the Apostle. The Scriptures state that Saint Andrew was the first to be called by Jesus Christ to become an Apostle, which is why he has remained known as "Protokletos" meaning “The First-Called".

Together with the rest of the disciples, he taught the Word of God and faithfully followed Jesus Christ until his Crucifixion.

Saint Andrew is the patron saint of Patras, as he was martyred there, and most of his relics are in the city's Holy Temple of Saint Andrew.


Apolytikion

As first of the Apostles to be called, O Andrew, brother of him (Peter) who was foremost, beseech the Master of all to grant the world peace and our souls great mercy.

Kontakion

Let us praise the namesake of bravery, the divinely eloquent and first to be called of the Disciples of Christ, the kinsman of Peter. As he called out to him in days of old, so now he calls to us, "Come, we have found Him for whom we yearned."


Hand-Painted Icons occupy a valuable place in ecclesiastical art because, beyond their obvious artistic value, a hand-painted icon unites man with the holiness of the depicted person.


For the Hand-Painted of Saint Andrew the Apostle, the First-Called our experienced painters use traditional techniques and high-quality materials that offer excellent depiction and durability over time.


All our Hand-Painted Icons are painted with egg tempera, while you can choose the size of the icon, the decoration of the background, the language of the inscriptions as well as the type of wood you wish to use.


Note: The final Icon may slightly differ from the catalog photo.
