The birth of a small masterpiece

The completion of a sanctified Byzantine icon!

The talented  hagiographer, Eva Miskou Varela ( ), sent me today the final photos, showcasing the completion of her unique 1860 Virgin Mary Byzantine icon.

Eva added the last strokes and finalized her painting by adding the text and the final details on the figures' clothes.

At the end Eva applied on the icon a layer of varnish, and let this beautiful, small masterpiece to dry.
