Saint Irene Chrysovalantou, Full Body - Hand Painted Icon

[Model: HND_st-6888]

Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint Irene Chrysovalantou.


Saint Irene Xrysovalantou came from Cappadocia but ended up in Constantinople as, due to her youthful beauty, she was destined to be the bride of Emperor Michael. 

However, Saint Irene at an early age had decided to follow a monastic life and despite the objections of her father, Filaretos, he was the one to finally led her to the women's Monastery of Xrysovalantou, in Constantinople. 

With the gift given to her by God, Saint Irene Chrysovalantou performed many miracles and helped both the Monastery, in which she was Abbess until her death, and the visitors who came to her for enlightenment. 


Apolytikion 

Not a temporal kingdom on earth didst thou obtain, but Christ, thy most comely Bridegroom, vouchsafed thee heavenly crowns, and thou reignest as a queen with Him eternally; for thou didst dedicate thyself unto Him with all thy soul, O Irene, our righteous Mother, thou boast of Chrysovalantou, and mighty help of all the Orthodox.


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 Irene Chrysovalantou, 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.
