Craftsmanship and quality are worth celebrating. With a Clarté Icon, you
experience true excellence created by skilled artisans and
hagiographers that draw on centuries of artistic and religious
Each beautiful Clarté Icon is made in Greece, often with the intention
of being an exact replica of a Byzantine hagiography icon and therefore a
significant Greek Orthodox symbol. These precious pieces are plated in
silver, while the faces of the saints, the Virgin Mary and Christ have
been painted with meticulous detail by hand.
As one of the most honoured and beloved figures of the church, the Virgin Mary goes by many names, such as Theotokos (Mother of God) and Despina (Our Lady), while August 15 is her traditional assumption day, wherein Mary was taken up to Heaven at the end of her earthly life. Here, she prays with the rosary in her hands, a blessed halo shining above her and her face a vision of peace.
A Clarté Icon such as this is a unique and special union of tradition, spirituality and beauty worth cherishing.
