This icon was painted by the master iconographer Saint Andrei Rublev. It shows the Archangel Gabriel bringing the news of the news of Christ's Incarnation. The Virgin Mary receives the news with surprise, but at her amen, the Holy Spirit descended upon her (symbolically depicted as a dove). This is the moment at which she became the Theotokos.
The Legacy board is made of durable MDF and has a wooden veneer on the back. Each board is cut and sanded 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.
