Description

Icon with water-gilding on natural linden wood. The wood has been prepared in heat and gilded with gold leaf 24K, in accordance with traditional Byzantine techniques. The icon has been painted with egg-tempera paints for best performance and endurance of colors used. The colors were chosen based on studies and analyses of older icons by renowned iconographers, after ARTIS had first conducted conservation treatments on them.

Saint Valentina is known as one of the three virgin martyrs. She preferred to embrace a brutal martyrdom for Christ’s sake than to offer sacrifice to the idols. Her martyrdom was very painful; she was severely beaten and then beheaded. The memory of Saint Valentina is commemorated on the 14th of February.
