   Every item presented on our website is unique. All of them are created and inspired by the vision of the artist and within the strict iconographic tradition and canons of the Orthodox Church.

   The icon is something extraordinary. It is different from any other painting because it follows different principles in its foundation. It is theology expressed through paint and carving. One should mention that, strictly speaking, icons do not have an “author” . Their author is the tradition and experience of the Church accumulated through her Saints. The understanding of these basic principles makes it clear that some modern copying can dilute the live content of the icon. This is the reason why for us the work of a woodcarver or an iconographer is part of their ministry in the Church.
