Aged-Wooden Byzantine Icon of Saint Savvas.
Saint Savvas came from Cappadocia and at a young age decided to follow a monastic life.
At the age of eighteen he went to Jerusalem and joined a convent. There, he stood out for his virtues and his devotion to the Word of God, and as a result of which Euthymius the Great proclaimed him a children's elder.
He passed away peacefully in 584 AD at an advanced age. When his tomb was opened years later, his incorruptible remains were revealed.
Apolytikion of Saint Savvas
With the rivers of your tears, you have made the barren desert fertile. Through sighs of sorrow from deep within you, your labors have borne fruit a hundred-fold. By your miracles you have become a light, shining upon the world. O Savas, our Holy Father, pray to Christ our God, to save our souls.
The aging technique is meticulously applied to the Icon by hand and gives it the look of time while the depiction retains its artistic details.
Around the perimeter, the aging becomes more apparent with frayed edges that give the Icon a distinctive appearance.
During the final processing, the Aged-Wooden Icon of Saint Savvas is polished with a special varnish to withstand time.
