This byzantine icon is a lithography with double varnish layer to ensure vivid colors and waterproof properties depicting Saint Catherine is an god inspired artwork abiding to the Athonian technique that was gives this icon unique religious and aesthetic value. The vivid representation of 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.

This wonderful icon has been crafted on solid natural pine wood and it was carved by hand. 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 the scene of Saint Ypomoni.

Can be hung on a wall or placed on a flat surface.
