Saint Anthony the Great, Full Body - Hand Painted Icon

[Model: HND_st-7239]

Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint Anthony the Great.


Saint Anthony the Great was born in 251 in Egypt and was the first hermit of Christianity. His story begins after the death of his parents when he donated his great fortune to the poor and placed his sister with a group of Christian Virgins, in order to flee to the desert and become an ascetic.

There, he lived away from the world with many privations and his soul struggled. Nevertheless, he was able to curb his passions and thus reached a higher level of religious spirit.

Saint Anthony the Great died at the age of 105 and became an example for many monks.


Troparion

By emulating the ways of Elias the zealot, / and following the straight paths of the Baptist, / O Father Anthony, you made the desert a city, / and upheld the world by your prayers. / Therefore, entreat Christ God that our souls be saved.


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 Icon of Saint Anthony the Great 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.
