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 Vladimir, Equal-to-the-Apostles, was king of the Russians and son of the prince of Kiev, Svetoslav. He was born in the year 958 AD. His mother was named Malousa and was originally a servant of the Queen Saint Olga. When Vladimir ascended the throne of Kiev, he was a pagan and was guided by the principles of that religion. Later on, however, through the fervent prayers of his holy grandmother and the light from above, he came to belief in Christ and was baptised in Kiev. He baptised many Russian Christians and built two beautiful churches in Kiev. His life was radically changed. He became a true Christian and assisted greatly in the spread of Christianity. He reposed in peace on the 15th of July in the year 1015 AD.
