Icon with water-gilding on plywood. 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 George the Great Martyr and Trophy-Bearer was born around the year 275 AD in Cappadocia to Christian parents. When he turned 18 years old, he enlisted in the Roman army, where quickly he rose to its highest ranks. Despite the glory and honours afforded him, he preached the truth of the Christian religion and the Divinity of Christ. At the same time, he did not hesitate to give up everything and confess his faith before the Emperor Diocletian and other leaders. He endured many horrible tortures and was finally martyred by beheading. Saint George worked many miracles, and many churches have been built in his honour. His memory is usually celebrated on the 23rd of April, except in cases where Pascha is before this date, in which case his feast is moved to Bright Monday.
