Portable Icons

In USA Iconographer Workshop we create Byzantine and Renaissance icons and representations of Orthodox Christianity.

Icons painted on a piece of wood. The most suitable wood for this purpose is oak, lime-wood and cypress but can also be used industrial wood instead of natural wood.
All our paintings are handmade and their dimensions vary. We create small and large icons.

The images, depending on the age and circumstances of their reception, They are likely to get damaged more frequently warping and cracking due to moisture, deterioration by insects, soot deposits from candles and lamps, the over-paintings, the varnish oxidation and color loss.
