This handmade orthodox icon is a lithography with double varnish layer to ensure vivid colors and waterproof properties depicting Saint Avvakum is a god inspired artwork abiding to the Athonian technique that was gives this icon unique religious and aesthetic value.

Saint Avvakum, also spelled Avvakum or Avvakoum, was a prominent figure in Russian Orthodox Church history. Born in 1620, he became a fervent proponent of religious reform and spiritual purity. As a priest and an ascetic, he vehemently opposed the reforms of Patriarch Nikon, particularly the changes to church rituals and practices.

Avvakum's outspoken criticism of the reforms led to his excommunication and persecution by the church authorities. Despite facing imprisonment, torture, and exile, he remained steadfast in his beliefs, continuing to write and preach against what he saw as heretical changes to Orthodox tradition.

His autobiography, "Life of Avvakum," provides insight into his life, struggles, and unwavering faith. Avvakum's steadfast refusal to compromise his principles made him a symbol of religious resistance and martyrdom in Russian history.

In 1682, he was burned at the stake for his defiance, becoming one of the most revered saints of the Russian Orthodox Church. Saint Avvakum's legacy endures as a testament to the enduring power of faith and conviction in the face of adversity.
