Wooden Icon of Saint Aquilina of Byblos with a Guardian Angel


Saint Aquilina of Byblos faced persecution from the Roman Emperor Diocletian due to her Christian faith. She was only 12 when a pagan friend converted to Christianity, leading to her arrest by imperial governor Volusian. He attempted to change her views to no avail, and so ordered for her punishment by torture--including heated metal rods through her ears. Presumed dead, the young girl was thrown out of the city; however, a holy angel appeared to her, healed her, and urged the martyr to face Volusian once more. Aquilina did so, whereupon the governor sentenced her to death. Just before her beheading, however, a voice from Heaven summoned her to join God's kingdom. Buried by Christians, her remains were later transferred to Constantinople and enshrined in a church named after her (+293).


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:
