  • About the work

The icon is painted on Greek Oak Tree wood with half-Gold flakes. It is crafted with the authentic hagiography technique of ovography. In Eastern Orthodoxy, George travelled to Nicomedia where he joined the Roman army. George was persecuted by one Dadianus. George was executed by decapitation before Nicomedia's city wall. A witness of his suffering convinced Empress Alexandra of Rome to become a Christian as well, so she joined George in martyrdom.
