Knowing that our faith is linked to a series of visuals that demonstrate its soundness is a peaceful and quiet reassurance. Here we see that nearly 900 years ago the Cross of our Lord, the holy instrument of our salvation, was revered in this 12th century Russian icon. In this icon we see the Cross flanked by the Archangels Michael and Gabriel. In their hands are instruments representing the Passion: the sponge and lance. Hovering above them are the angelic host, the Cherubim and six-winged Seraphim.
Deep, rich, and balanced tones make this icon a powerful addition to your prayer corner. Gently restored to remove major cracks and damage, Legacy Icons works diligently to allow some of the aging to display the timelessness of our faith. Buy one today for yourself, a family member, friend, or your clergy. A must-have. This icon is handcrafted in a square format to maintain its true dimensions.
Most of our icons are made for each order one at a time and take about 10-14 working days. We do however rush at no charge for realistic requests.Our sizes are APPROXIMATE and we will do our best to get as close to the listed size as we can. We prefer not to crop an image but rather leave the Holy image as close to its original size as possible. Please leave us a note in your order if you have special sizing requests.
Our carpenters come from Grand Rapids, Michigan, which is home to the finest furniture makers and carpenters since the 19th century.
The Legacy board is our signature icon board. Our woodcraftsmen begin with hand-chosen poplar and cut it to the desired size. From there, they place oak slats across the back of the board to create a wood base that is second to none. The thicker board (1.25 inches) is like the board of a hand-painted panel icon.
The Standard board is made of durable MDF and has a wooden veneer on the back. If you desire a more affordable icon with a thinner board similar to other reproductions, consider the Standard icon.
We begin with the finest 100% cotton, PH-neutral, archival museum-quality papers and canvases. Our prints are made in a controlled lab environment, using a special process which took over a decade to perfect. Finally, a series of custom sealants protect the image from fading, sun damage, and ozone by forming a barrier to outside elements.
Unlike other icon duplications, our prints have been environmentally-tested to resist degradation and fading for over 80 years, and in many cases well beyond 100. We do not laminate our icons, as lamination has unpredictable results for image stability. Our mission is to create timeless icons that will last, so you will only have to purchase them once.
Our museum-grade canvas prints have a slight texture, while the museum-grade paper prints are smooth.
We can customize your icon to any size you request. If you are looking for a size larger than what we have to offer, contact us and we can accommodate your needs.
