22 Karat Gold Leaf
Our icons are made of solid, natural limewood, and have been prepared by hand using traditional methods and organic materials. The background is composed of 22 karat gold leaves that are meticulously applied by hand, piece by piece. All iconography themes are reproduced according to museum print standards. We offer several collections of Holy Icons, featuring Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary and many Saints and Archangels.
From Mount Athos
Our collection of Holy Icons also includes replicas of original iconography themes created by Monks in Mount Athos.
The Holy Icon pictured is "Deisis". Original iconography was created by Monks in the Cell of St. John the Theologian in Koutloumousiou Monastery in Mount Athos.
What Others are Saying
The icon of St. George that I recently purchased is absolutely gorgeous! Everything from the fine details in the painting, the gold background, and the wood block / frame are perfect. I have it hanging in my den, and every time I glance at it I smile. It is stunning! I couldn’t be happier with my purchase! It is heirloom quality!Robert B.
All of Athonite icons are of superior quality. The 22 Karat gold leaf is lovely, rich and warm. I wanted to buy all of them when I saw the exhibit at our festival. I especially liked that this icon was given the name “She Who Is Quick to Hear”. Since I have an impatient nature, and I thought of one more place to set her so my prayers might be heard, I took her home with me. Thank you Angelica for helping me with my purchase.Vicki G.
Athonite has the most beautiful and highest quality holy icons that I have seen in Greece and the US! The quality of the Athonite icons is truly exceptional and impressive in every aspect: the choice of miraculous, unique or rare holy icons as prototypes; the stellar depiction of the holy images according to the Byzantine tradition of iconography & the vibrancy of the colors!Helen C.
