A beautiful and unique hagiography crafted on premium quality hagiography aged putted canvas with the representation of Saint Catherine of Alexandria. An artwork following the Authentic Athonian techniques to the letter created with love and patience. An icon made from solid pine wood that has undergone the process of ageing along with handcrafted details to give it unique aesthetic value.


St. Catherine is believed to have been born in Alexandria of a noble family. Converted to Christianity through a vision, she denounced Maxentius for persecuting Christians. Fifty of her converts were then burned to death by Maxentius. Maxentius offered Catherine a royal marriage if she would deny the Faith. Her refusal landed her in prison. While in prison, and while Maxentius was away, Catherine converted Maxentius' wife and two hundred of his soldiers. He had them all put to death.

St. Catherine was likewise condemned to death. She was put on a spiked wheel, and when the wheel broke, she was beheaded. For this reason these saint icons picture her with a spiked wheel. She is venerated as the patroness of philosophers and preachers. St. Catherine's was one of the voices heard by St. Joan of Arc.

Maxentius' blind fury against St. Catherine is symbolic of the anger of the world in the face of truth and justice. When we live a life of truth and justice, we can expect the forces of evil to oppose us. Our perseverance in good, however, will be everlasting.
