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.
The Legacy board is made of durable MDF and has a wooden veneer on the back. Each board is cut in our shop by our woodworkers. The corners are routed and a keyhole is placed in the back for easy hanging.
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.
We can customize your icon to any size you request. æIf you are looking for a size larger than what we have to offer, contact us and we can accommodate your needs.
