Throughout the early history of the Christian world, iconography has
played a definitive role in educating the faithful – in the early ages,
when most of the common populace were illiterate, they looked to these
artistic interpretations to better grasp of the scriptures.
The work of Byzantine artists however, went above and beyond simply
teaching by adorning their religious paintings in precious metals, such
as gold and silver as well as jewels, in order to express reverence.
Their truly spectacular works of faithful art have now been recreated by
Axion, who combine the vast experience of their craftsmen with advanced
technology to rightly represent holy figures.
These precise copies have been crafted with genuine hagiography colours
and plated in silver, before being set in beautiful frames that make for
charming display. An Axion icon is a wonderful way to make a statement
of faith, while also honouring history.
