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 Anastasia was from the city of Rome. At a young age, she was married to Poplion, a Roman lord and a fanatical pagan. Despite all of this, Saint Anastasia was catechized in the way of Christ and received Holy Baptism. Because she could not show her Christian faith in public, she provided help in secret to all who were in need and would provide them with medicines. For this reason, she is known as “Pharmakolytria” or giver of medicines. When Poplion was informed of her activities, he ordered her imprisonment. Ultimately, the Saint was thrown into the fire and died in 290 AD. A piece of her skull is kept at the Holy Monastery of Koutloumousiou on Mount Athos. She is considered the patron saint of pharmacists, and her feast day is celebrated on the 22nd of December.
