This icon of our God and Savior Jesus Christ dates to the sixth or seventh century. It was painted at the Monastery of St. Catherine in the Sinai Peninsula. Due to the remote location of the monastery, this icon survived the period of iconoclasm that rocked the Church in the ninth and tenth centuries, and stands as a witness to a golden era in the Church's life.
Deep browns, golds, charcoals and grays cause a stunning balanced tone to this image. We have skillfully and expertly brought the tones to life and no home collection is complete without this image.
The stunning Phosicon is printed on cotton/satin cloth with archival pigments. After the image is printed it is hand sewn with reeds to hold the cloth at the top and bottom. Length will vary determined by proportion. Each Phosicon includes a suction cup for easy hanging!
Note: Phosicons are not fireproof, and are designed to be illuminated by the sun and moonlight in your windows.
