This wonderful icon has been created with the technique of lithography and has a double varnish to ensure waterproof and duration 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 both the technique of lithography and the process of handmade artificial ageing.


St. Macrina was born to a holy family: her parents were Ss. Basil the Elder and Emily; four of her nine brothers and sisters are commemorated as saints: Basil the Great, Peter of Sebaste, Gregory of Nyssa, and Theosebia the Deaconess; her grandmother, for whom she was named, is commemorated as St. Macrina the Elder.


Macrina greatly influenced her younger brother Peter in his religious training, directing him toward a spiritual and ascetic life. After her siblings grew up and the death of her father, she convinced her mother to take monastic vows with her. Following her mother's death, she led the nuns in the monastery. She died in 379/380 and was buried in a grave shared with her parents, with a eulogy by her younger brother, St. Gregory. He also wrote The Life of St. Macrina.



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