A unique high - quality lithography icon with Saint Veronica with double varnish to ensure waterproof properties and long lasting in time. An exquisite Byzantine artwork with handcrafted details. It is hand finished on natural pine wood.

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 hagiography and the process of handmade ageing.


Saint Veronica (also Berenice) is known as the woman who wiped Christ's face as He carried His cross towards Golgotha and as the woman whom Christ cured of the issue of blood, who is also traditionally identified as Herod the Great's niece. The Church celebrates her feast day on July 12.

Few concrete details are known of the life of Saint Veronica, though much folklore has arisen, especially in Western Christendom, concerning her miraculous cloth, or veil, which touched the face of Christ.


Traditionally, Veronica came to believe in Christ when He healed her of an ailment that had afflicted her for twelve years:


And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and

touched the hem of his garment:

For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole.

And the woman was made whole from that hour.1

The next episode that we hear of in her life is the famous cloth incident during Christ's crucifixion. When Christ paused in exhaustion, Veronica was able to give the Lord her handkerchief. When she looked at the cloth again, she realized that an image of Christ's face had appeared on it; this is often called the first icon. Veronica's name itself is said to be derived from the Latin words meaning true (verus) image/icon .
