Saint Nikon Greek Orthodox Icon
High quality byzantine Orthodox handmade icons. Made in Greece and constructed in the traditional Orthodox manner.
Iconographer: Father Michael
Commemorates on: November 26
Saint Nikon, the son of a certain noble, was from Armenia. Forsaking his parents and homeland, he passed throughout the parts of the East, crying to all men, "Repent ye," because of which he received this name. Finally, he came to Lacedaemonia of the Peloponnesus, where he built a church in honor of Christ our Savior. After having dwelt there many years in solitude, and having converted many from paganism, he departed to the Lord about the end of the ninth century.
The icon reproductions are created by iconographer monks of various Greek Orthodox monasteries in Greece and all images are approved replications by the Greek Orthodox Church. As icons are considered to be the Gospel in image, these images are accurate and true Orthodox renderings, not second-hand interpretations. The icon images are mounted on solid wood and protected from tarnish with a varnish finish that seals in colors and creates a shiny luster.
