Icon with water-gilding on natural linden wood. The wood has been prepared in heat and gilded with gold leaf 24K, in accordance with traditional Byzantine techniques. The icon has been painted with egg-tempera paints for best performance and endurance of colors used. The colors were chosen based on studies and analyses of older icons by renowned iconographers, after ARTIS had first conducted conservation treatments on them.
Saint Daria lived during the reign of Numerian. She was martyred alongside Saint Chrysanthus, who came from Alexandria and was the son of prominent pagans. However, he was catechized in the Christian faith by a Christian and was soon baptized. When his father was informed of this, he gave him the beautiful Daria to marry. She came from Athens and was a pagan woman. But instead of Daria drawing her husband Chrysanthus back into idolatry, the opposite occurred. She came to believe in Christ and was baptized. Then, they were denounced together to the hyparch Celerinus, who handed them over to the tribune Claudius. He had both Saints Chrysanthus and Daria thrown into a pit and buried alive. Their memory is celebrated on the 19th of March.
