St. Andrew the Apostle 3D icon (T1)
3D Orthodox icon of Saint Andrew the Apostle.
This is a unique icon of Saint Andrew because it is mounted in a way that gives it three dimensions. After mounting it on wood the icon is trimmed and put on a block of hand carved wood. The icon is finished with hand made details and given a coat of resin for protection.
The time frame to make this type of icons is 17 to 20 days.
Saint Andrew was the first called of Jesus' disciples. He was the brother of Peter. Saint Andrew was born in the village of Bethsaida on the Sea of Galilee, a fisherman like Peter. After the ascension of Jesus and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, Andrew travelled around the area of the Black see and then down into Greece. He established a church is a small town called Byzantium which later would become Constantinople. The Ecumenical Patriarch of the Orthodox Church can trace his ordination back to Andrew.
Andrew was crucified in Patras, Greece by being tied to a X cross so his death would be a slow one.
