Wooden Icon of Saint David of Gareji (St. David of Gareja) with scenes of his life


The Venerable David of Gareji came at the command of the Mother of God to Georgia from Syria in the middle of the 6th century, together with the Venerable John of Zedazni, among his 12 disciples.

At first, the holy fathers settled on Mount Zedazeni, not far from Mtskheta. After 3 years, the Monk John sent his companions to different parts of Georgia. The Monk David and his disciple Lucian settled in the vicinity of Tbilisi on Mount Mta-Tsminda (“Holy Mountain”).

Georgia was baptized more than 200 years earlier by Saint Nina.

The Monk David died after receiving Holy Communion on May 7/20, 604, Thursday after the Ascension. Therefore, his memory is celebrated on this day, and on May 7/20 all 13 Syrian fathers are commemorated.


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.
