The list of the most important works you can see at the part named ABOUT US
Welcome to our site! All icons on this site is our unique works, created by all orthodox canons with ancient tehnology. You can see earlier painted icons in THE GALLERY.
Orthodox icons have had a rich history in inspiring the imagination of devout believers throughout the centuries. Our icons painted by eggs tempera only with naturale pigments on the speacial wood board and covered real gold. An icon is always written on a well prepared board dried in natural conditions for more than 10 years. It is usually poplar, carved with a recess ("kovcheg" or "ark")in the center, then covered with smooth but absorbent gesso. Icon painters make their own paints using minerals, semi-precious stones (lasurite, malachite, dioptase, azurite, vivianite and others). Ancient traditions of Byzantine, Greek and Russian masters are studied in the studio. An icon of any size, from very small to large iconostases, can be written for you according to your order and your home can be beautified by namesake and family icons.
