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.
Mother of Christ Jesus, she is a symbol of purity and virtue.
A Clarté Icon such as this is a unique and special union of tradition, spirituality and beauty worth cherishing.
