A unique high - quality lithography icon with Aquila and Priscilla 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.

The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Aquila is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. A Jew living in Italy, he moved to Corinth with his wife Priscilla when Emperor Claudius drove the Jews from Italy. The Apostle Paul met him in Corinth, converted and baptized his household and then lived with him for a year and a half.

They traveled with St. Paul to Ephesus, where St. Paul wrote his first letter to the Church at Corinth in which he mentioned Sts. Aquila and Priscilla (I Corinthians 16:19). When Emperor Claudius died, the Jews were allowed to return to Rome, which Sts. Aquila and Priscilla did. Thus when St. Paul wrote to the Church at Rome he greeted his old friends in his letter (Romans 16:3-4). Later on these saints are found in Ephesus once again with the Apostle Timothy, and St. Paul mentions them again in his second epistle to St. Timothy (II Timothy 4:19)).

As Bishop, St. Aquila built many churches, destroyed many idols, ordained priests and preached the Gospel vigorously. He was martyred for the sake of Christ. The Church remembers St. Aquila on July 14.

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