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.
