Saint John icon, oval.
Saint John, "the Theologian in Silence", like the other Evangelists, is represented inside his writing room. John, in a different way to Luke with Mark and Matthew is writing not inspired by an angel, but inspired by his disciple Prochorus.
Luke, travel companion of Paul, is the writer of the third Gospel and of the Acts of the Apostles.
The symbol that the fathers of the church have given to Saint John is the eagle, the eye that stares at the sun, because his Gospel begins with the contemplation of God.
This icon was painted in Romania, it's entirely hand made following the traditional techniques of the Byzantine art.
It has an oval shape with particular decorations on the sides.
Delivered in an elegant blue box with insides in satin.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO PURCHASE THIS ICON WITH THE ICONS OF THE OTHER EVANGELISTS.
