Aged-Wooden Byzantine Icon of Panagia "Platytera of the Heavens".
Traditionally, Panagia "Platytera of the Heavens" is depicted in the dome above the altar, facing down to the congregation. Her name, Platytera (meaning more spacious), symbolizes her ability to contain within her the creator of the world and, also, all the humanity.
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 Panagia "Platytera of the Heavens" is polished with a special varnish to withstand time.
Note: The final Icon may slightly differ from the catalog photo.
