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.

Our venerable father Pachomius the Great (c. 292-346 A.D.) was an early Egyptian ascetic, both a Desert Father and a founder of cenobitic monasticism in Egypt. He is celebrated by the Church on May 15 and is one of the few (non Biblical) saints to be venerated by Oriental Orthodoxy, Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism and some Protestant Churches.

St. Pachomius (c. 292-348 AD) was an early Christian ascetic who founded one of the earliest Christian monastic communities in Tabennisi, Egypt. He created the "Pachomian Rule," emphasizing communal living, prayer, and work. His influence on communal monasticism is profound, and he is commemorated as a saint.

St. Pachomius died in 348 AD, leaving behind a significant legacy in the history of Christian monasticism. His ideas and rules profoundly influenced the development of monasticism in both the Eastern Orthodox and Western Christian traditions. St. Pachomius is commemorated as a saint in the Christian liturgical calendar and is often regarded as one of the fathers of communal monasticism.
