MAKING AN ICON

 

The icon is made with a laminated technique, glazed, framed, the halo is made of metal gilded with 24 carat gold, discreetly decorated with glass zircons.

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 OF DECANI

The Serbian Church and Orthodox believers celebrate the Holy Martyr Stephen on November 24 as the baptismal feast popularly known as St. Martin's Day. Saint Stephen of Decani spent his childhood as a hostage at the court of Khan Nogay. By the order of King Milutin, he was blinded, and by the order of Car Dusan, he was drowned in old age. According to church teachings, he built the church of Visoki Decani and donated a large icon to the Basilica of St. Nicholas in Bari.
