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.

Saint Nina (or Nino) was born in Cappadocia, where many Georgians lived, and is said to be a relative of Saint George the Great Martyr, the Trophy Bearer . Her father, Zavoulon, a pious and famous soldier, before he even got married, had left his homeland of Cappadocia, to offer his services to the emperor Maximian. Her mother, Susanna, was the sister of the Bishop of Jerusalem, Juvenal. Her father, burning with love for God, became, with the consent of his wife, a monk in the desert of Jordan. The mother of Agia Nina was placed as a deacon in the Church of the Resurrection. Agia Nina was handed over to the most revered Elder Niofora, to raise her.
