ICA228 8" X 13" ICON ON WOOD



Size (in inches):


Wood-mounted icons are on 5/8" ProWood® Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) with a wood-look foil finish, with tee-slots milled in the back for easy hanging. Icons are finished in classic cherry to replicate the traditional icon red, in keeping with Byzantine tradition. (Ancient icon board edges were frequently coated with red bole, a form of clay). Each mounted icon comes with a descriptive pamphlet explaining the symbolism and history of the image.

Please allow 5-10 business days for orders of 20 or more icons.

Our icon designs are also available as unmounted prints in sanctuary-size enlargements up to 38 inches wide. The latest technology enables enlargement without sacrificing quality. We do not currently have the ability to mount these prints on wood or any other material. You may purchase your own frame from a custom frame shop. Call 800-889-0105 for pricing and ordering.

Theology and Symbolism

This icon portrays the Blessed Virgin Mary with St. John the Evangelist. John is in a white and gold tunic, with a red cloak, and a white stole being placed on him by Mary. Mary is wearing blue and purple, with stars on her forehead and shoulders. The hand of God is blessing them from the upper right, and is holding a scroll, with the Greek letters "IC XC" for "Jesus Christ." This Beloved Disciple, who was entrusted with the care of the Virgin Mary, would have continued his "seminary training" with her, refining their theology together by their closeness to Jesus.
