The word "icon" comes from a Greek verb whose meaning is "like, resemble", whence the modern notion of "fine art". The icon is also considered an unavoidable liturgical vessel that sanctifies a person and introduces him into a direct relationship with the grace and the person depicted on it. It is very important that the bearer of the picture is a board made of linden wood, which is fixed with templates that are on the back of the icon and do not allow bending and deformation of the board.

The painting process itself is performed on a specially prepared preparation, which was previously applied to the board. Natural pigments are used for painting, which are mixed with a natural binder (yolk). This type of paint is called Egg Tempera.




Saint Stephen is always celebrated on January 9, the third day of Christmas, and it is one of the greater celebrations in our nation. The holiday is dedicated to the Holy First Martyr and Archdeacon Stephen. Saint Stephen was a Jew and a cousin of the apostle Paul. He is the first of the seven deacons who were ordained by the holy apostles and placed in the service of helping the poor in Jerusalem. That is why he was called an archdeacon. By his faith he performed many miracles among the people, and he opposed his Jewish opponents with the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit. He was accused of blaspheming God and Moses, and with the help of false witnesses he was condemned. Saint Stephen is the first Christian who suffered for the Lord and that is why he is called the First Martyr. Saint Stephen was secretly taken and buried on his property by a secret Christian and Jewish prince Gamaliel.
The cult of this saint is very developed among the Serbian people and over 40 temples with his name have been built.
