Wooden Icon of the saint Martyr Agathia (Agatha) of Panorma (Palermo)

Saint Agathia or Agatha came from a noble and wealthy family in the city of Catania in Sicily. She suffered for the faith of Christ under the evil ruler Quintian.

The following year, on the day of the death of the holy martyr, Mount Etna began to erupt, and a stream of lava threatened to turn Catania into ashes. Then the pagans rushed along with the Christians to the grave of the martyr. Taking the blanket lying on the grave, they blocked it, like a shield, from the fiery river, which immediately stopped. This miracle was repeated more than once in subsequent centuries, which is why Saint Agathia is fervently prayed to as the protector of the city of Catania. Her veneration is widespread in the West and East.

The icon is made by printing on a wooden board. Paints are mineral, do not fade with time. The thickness of the board is 2 cm. The board is covered with soil by hand. The image is covered with wax. Each icon has a metal mount on the back side so that you can hang the icon on the wall.

Our icons are made by Orthodox craftsmen. You can read more about the technology here: https://iconsofsaints.com/pages/how-is-the-icon-made
