Surrounded by a halo of twelve stars,
Mary invites us to pray,
with open hands, and open hearts,
to follow her son.
This glass icon is an artwork that I hand carved and thermoformed in glass at over 800 degrees in the most brilliant stained-glass studio in Europe : the LOIRE Studios near the Chartres cathedral in France. After the furnace, I delicately cover the silhouettes with 24 carats gold leaf and the twelve stars with 10 carats white gold.
It can be displayed in a prayer corner, with a candle nearby, on your desk, on a bookshelf. The gold leaf is sensitive, one should avoid touching it with fingers.
I will ship it within 3 days by express courrier in a reinforced protected box.
The icon is delivered with a modern and transparent plexiglass pedestal to make it stand upright, as well as a certificate of authenticity of the work and the identification number of the copy.
The icon is discreetly signed and dated with a diamond graver on the right side.
Dimension 7.87 x 11.8 x 0.25 inches.
