For larger dimensions, please visit our icon of the Panagia Eloussa

This icon is made of solid, natural limewood (Tilia) that has been prepared by hand using traditional methods and organic materials. The background is comprised of 22 Karat gold leaves that were meticulously applied by hand, piece by piece.  

All of our icons are reproduced according to museum print standards and are authentic replicas of Holy Icons from Mount Athos and elsewhere.

This icon of Mother of God is reproduced, with permission, from the authentic icon painted by the monks in the Cell of St. John the Theologian Holy Monastery of Koutloumousiou in Mount Athos, Greece. This icon is part of our collection “Icons from Mount Athos”, which features all icons from the Cell of St. John the Theologian.

From the moment you first hold your Holy Icon, you will see the exquisite details that bear truth to the meticulous preparation and creation of the image, as well as feel the depth and weight of the solid wood upon which it is portrayed. One of our larger icon dimensions (11.8" x 15.7"/30 x 40 cm) weighs more than 5 pounds! 

Because we value quality even in the details, your Holy Icon will be shipped in luxury packaging and can be presented as a gift for a friend or family member.

Amazing Icon

It’s my first time to buy an Icon and I truly loved the Icon, with all its details. It arrived on time and fast and with the note added in the back of the icon as requested. Excellent customer service and for sure it won’t be my last purchase form you! Thanks

The quality is super good. Arrived on time, decent packaging. Beautifully painted and amazing people! Highly recommended..

Absolutely Gorgeous!!!

I really enjoyed this icon and gave it as a present for a baptism (I was the godmother) - the picture does not do this icon justice as in person it was much more beautiful. In addition, the box and packaging that it came in were outstanding and I would highly recommend, especially if you are giving as a present because I did not need to buy a box for it. I highly recommend this icon - the quality is great and I will definitely be buying more icons from this company!

The Most Beautiful Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos!

This is one of the most beautiful icons of the Most Holy Theotokos! Athoniteusa has the highest quality holy icons that I have seen in Greece and the US!
The quality of the Athoniteusa icons is truly superb 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; the amazing level of detail and beauty of the colors and gold background; the highest quality, weight, and thickness of the wood; and the overall meticulous and fine craftsmanship!
Athoniteusa has also created beautiful packaging that complements the outstanding quality and beauty of the icons.
Thank you Athoniteusa for providing this unique collection of outstanding holy icons, and for the great blessing to have them in our home and offer them as precious, lifetime gifts!
