Monoxilitis Crafts from Mount Athos

Icons painted by the Monks of Mount Athos

Icons are an integral part of the Orthodox faith and they always had a deep spiritual significance. They are more than paintings, they are considered the "Windows to Heaven". They provide the focal point for our prayer, helping us connect with God. All our icons are hand painted by monks on Mount Athos. They use traditional techniques, handed down through the ages from Byzantine times. Pigments are made out of natural products, egg tempera, gold gilding or gold leaf on a seasoned wood panel.

These icons should be seen as works of art, heirlooms to be treasured, venerated and handed down through the generations. You can commission your own hand-painted Byzantine icon from Mount Athos of your name-day saint, Lord Jesus, the Virgin May or the Archangels.
