This icon is a serigraph. The combination of a traditional icon image and new "state of the art" printing techniques creates an almost perfect looking hand panted icon. Under guidance of a master icon "writer" (painter), the media technician manually and meticulously creates the image by series of screens or layers through which the paint is applied to the surface. Often they are enhanced with the application of gold leaf. The result is a brilliantly hued icon that retains its beauty for a lifetime. This icon was made in Greece.
