This byzantine icon is a lithography with double varnish layer to ensure vivid colors and waterproof properties depicting Saints Adrian & Natalia of Nicomedia,is a god inspired artwork abiding to the Athonian technique that was gives this icon unique religious and aesthetic value.

The holy Martyrs Adrian and Natalie confessed the Christian Faith during the reign of Maximian, in Nicomedia, in the year 298. Adrian was a pagan; witnessing the valor of the Martyrs, and the fervent faith with which they suffered their torments, he also declared himself a Christian and was imprisoned. When this was told to his wife Natalie, who was secretly a believer, she visited him in prison and encouraged him in his sufferings. Saint Adrian's hands and feet were placed on an anvil and broken off with a hammer; he died in his torments. His blessed wife recovered part of his holy relics and took it to Argyropolis near Byzantium, and reposed in peace soon after.

Feast day and patronage

Russian Orthodox icon of the martyrs Adrian and Natalia.
In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Saint Hadrian shares a feast day with his wife on 26 August (Revised Julian calendar and/or Gregorian calendar), or on 8 September (most Orthodox Churches still use the historic Julian calendar); he also has feast days alone on 4 March. In the Roman Catholic Church, he is venerated alone, without his wife, on September 8.[9] The Coptic Orthodox Church likewise venerates St. Adrian and his companions on the third day of the Coptic month known as Nesi (corresponding to September 8), mentioning his wife's role during the Synaxarion reading of that day; spelling in the Coptic Synaxarion (likely a result of translating from Arabic to English) yields the names Andrianus and Anatolia.

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