Saint Joachim and Saint Anne are the parents of the Virgin Mary and grandparents of Jesus Christ. Saint Joachim, whose name means “Yahweh prepares”, was from Nazareth and probably rich. He married St. Anne from Bethlehem and Mary was promised to them by an Angel. They are honoured as role models for parents.
In our production of icons, we employ original techniques dating back to ancient monasteries including those of the monastery of St. Pantaleon, always using the best possible tools. Our icons are created on a traditional wooden base and are set in levkas, a chalk-based natural glue and background. The icon is printed on a silk canvas. A high-quality icon, with bright colours and the icon, seems like a hand-painted icon. cons that are made in our workshop all come with a certificate, attesting to their originality and the authenticity of our technology. The certificate is a guarantee of the high and long-standing quality of our icons.
