This wonderful icon IS A UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC HANDMADE PIECE OF ART crafted on premium quality aged putted hagiography canvas on solid pine wood.

Subsequently, they crippled George by wounding all his body. He kept shining like an angel. They were imprisoned again. Then, Saint George saw in his dream that Christ would announce to him that he would receive the wreath of martyrdom. The next morning, soldiers led George in front of Diocletian. George once again refused to sacrifice to idols and Diocletian ordered to decapitat
