This wonderful lithographed icon has been crafted on solid natural wood and treated twice with double varnish to ensure vivid colors and long lasting in time. The creator of this icon has learned the canonization of iconography in workshops of the Monasteries of Mount Athos, where he was taught the technique of hagiography and the process of handmade artificial ageing, which bears the image with the representation of Saint Antigone.


The Holy Saint Antigone was one of the forty students of Deacon Ammun, who lived in Edirne, Thrace. They lived in the year 305 AD. reigned by the emperor Licinius in the eastern part of the Roman Empire, a terrible persecutor of Christians. Licinius had therefore issued a decree for the extermination of the Christians, and his tyrannical order reached all the towns and villages.


The ruler of Edirne, Vavdos, referred Deacon Ammoun together with the forty schoolgirlsto Licinius, the lord of Thrace. After torturing them severely, he burned the first ten alive, beheaded the next eight, killed the next ten with a sword, struck them in the mouth and heart, and killed the remaining twelve with knives and glowing irons in the mouth. He killed Ammoun after putting an incandescent mask on his head (others say that he then beheaded him). Her memory is celebrated by the Orthodox Christian Church on September 1 of each year.
