Iconography is not only an art but also a process of spiritual enrichment which leads our minds
and hearts to God in a unique way.
At the iconography workshop of St. Anthony, we pursue the centuries old traditions of well-
known Ukrainian iconographers. You can purchase copies of ancient icons made by special
technology. Our workshop can be found next to St. Clement’s monastery in Lviv.
Among our works is the miraculous icon of Our Lady of Volodymyr (Vyshhorod) from the
twelfth century, the icon of the Holy Trinity of Andriy Rublev from the fifteenth century, the
miraculous icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help from the fifteenth century, the Holy Family, and
the Hodegetria of Our Lady of Krasiv from the fifteenth century.
In our production of icons, we employ original techniques dating back to ancient monasteries
including those of the monastery of St. Pantaleon, always using the best possible tools.
Our icons are created on a traditional wooden base and are set in levkas, a chalk-based natural
glue, and gold background. Afterwards, the iconographer, using natural paints, transcribes the
blessed image which is an exact copy of the original. Upon completion of the transcription, a few
finishing touches are incorporated following special techniques of the St. Pantaleon monastery,
giving the icon a truly mystical and ancient appearance. Thanks to this technique, natural cracks
begin to appear on the icons, replicating original icons of the medieval period.
Icons which are made in our workshop all come with a certificate bearing our seal, attesting to
their originality and the authenticity of our technology. Only a certificate and seal can act as a
guarantee of the high and long-standing quality of our icons.
This certificate along with the seal of our workshop bear witness to the uniqueness and
individuality of our technology.
We treat our customers with deep respect and understanding.
The greatest satisfaction that we can have is to see joy on the faces of people who received an
icon on their birthday or name-day, newlyweds smiling on their wedding day as they hold an
icon for their blessing, and families sincerely praying in front of their icons at home.
We will be glad to assist you and attend to all of your questions and concerns.
