OUR TECHNIQUE

In our production of icons, we employ original techniques dating back to ancient monasteries including those of the monastery of St. Pantaleon, always using the best possible tools. Our icons are created on a traditional wooden base and are set in levkas, a chalk-based natural glue, and gold background. Afterwards, the iconographer, using natural paints, transcribes the blessed image which is an exact copy of the original. Upon Completion of the transcription, a few finishing touches are incorporated following special techniques of the St. Pantaleon monastery, giving the icon a truly mystical and ancient appearance. Thanks to this technique, natural cracks begin to appear on the icons, replicating original icons of the medieval period. Icons which are made in our workshop all come with a certificate bearing our seal, attesting to their originality and the authenticity of our technology. Only a certificate and seal can act as a guarantee of the high and long-standing quality of our icons.
