Icon with water-gilding on natural lime tree 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. The gilded surface of the icon has been further decorated with hand-engravings (tsoukaniko).

Saint Nicholas was born in the 3rd century AD in Patara of Lycia to wealthy and noble parents. From a young age, he devoted himself to the ascetical life. On account of his incredible virtue, he was ordained to the priesthood in Patara, and later elevated to the office of the archiepiscopate of Myra. He led his flock with great love and, for this reason, he was arrested by the local authorities and thrown into jail. When Constantine the Great ascended to the imperial throne, however, Nicholas was restored to his archiepiscopal throne, even taking part in the First Ecumenical Council. God bestowed many graces on Saint Nicholas, including the ability to work miracles, which have saved many people, both during his life as well as after his blessed repose in 330 AD. Saint Nicholas is considered the patron saint of the Greek Navy and Coast Guard. His memory is honoured on the 6th of December.
