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 John Maximovitch was born in the southern Russian village of Adamovka on June 4th, 1896 AD. He was a quiet child, very polite and deeply religious. In 1914 AD, he graduated from the Military School and enrolled in Law School. In 1924 AD, he was tonsured reader in the Russian Church in Belgrade by Bishop Anthony. Afterwards, he was assigned to the Seminary in the city of Bitola, Serbia, and in 1934 AD he was elected against his own will as Bishop of Shanghai. In 1951 AD, Saint John went to America, but the bishops of the Synod there decided to send him to be bishop of Paris and Brussels. In Europe, aside from his other duties, he spent time writing biographies of various saints from before the Great Schism. Ten years later, he returned to America and was assigned Bishop of the Russian Church Abroad in San Francisco. He reposed in peace on July 2nd, 1966 AD. It is also worth noting that Saint John is considered patron of those who travel by airplane, because he himself often travelled in this manner.
