The Story Behind This Icon:

This is an iconographic posture of Jesus Christ the Lifegiver. Jesus Christ gives us his blessing with His right hand and holds the Gospel with His left hand, and is here to teach us about eternal life. The IC and XC letters on the left and right upper corner are the Greek abbreviations for the words “Jesus Christ”.


This icon of Jesus Christ the Lifegiver 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.

This icon is made of solid, natural Limewood 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.

Exceptionally beautiful. I ordered the 7.9 x 11. It has a recessed edge which adds subtle depth and creates a soft framing of the image. The colors are rich and sharp. The gold leaf is brilliant. The fidelity of the print is marvelous. It feels very sturdy as well. I am beyond pleased with this icon.


I ordered the 5 x 7 size. The icon is very beautiful. The quality is exceptional. The case that it comes in is a very nice added touch. I did have a question about my order and the response was very quick and very kind. Shipping was timely and very well packaged. I look forward to purchasing additional icons from this vendor. God Bless.

Excellent quality
