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 Seraphim was born in Kursk, Russia on July 19th, 1759 AD. At the age of ten years old, he began to learn with zeal the Holy Scriptures, but he suddenly became gravely sick without any hope of recovery. At a crucial point in the course of his illness, he saw the Mother of God in his sleep. She promised him that he would visit him and heal him. She kept her promise. In return, the young man abandoned his father’s house in the city of Kursk and went to become a monk at the Monastery of Sarov. On August 13th, 1786 AD, he became a monk. On September 2nd, 1793 AD, he was ordained to the priesthood. With the blessing of the Abbot, however, he left the Monastery and withdrew to the thick forests of Sarov. He spent fifteen years in complete isolation, in strict fasting, unceasing prayer and study of the Divine Word. At the end of his life as a hermit, he returned to the Monastery of Sarov and enclosed himself in a tomb, completely alone. He heard the confessions of many and healed the sick. Others he had embrace the cross he wore hanging on his chest or the icon that he had on the table of his cell. The Saint reposed in peace on the 2nd of January, 1833 AD.
