Greek-Byzantine Icons


Welcome on the website of Maria Lavie, a french orthodox icon-painter trained in Patmos (Greece).

*The icons presented in this site are relevant of the contemporary neo-byzantine trend generated in the 60's by Sister Olympias, an orthodox nun from the Annonciation Monastery in Patmos, a well-known artist in the orthodox world.

These icons are caracterized by their faithfulness to ancient greek and byzantine tradition in both technic and composition.

Maria Lavie's icons are painted according to traditional technics, egg tempera on wood pannel with gold-leaf gilding, the same technics that were used more than a thousand years ago.

Feel free to surf among the four icon galleries to discover the artistic and spiritual beauty of the oriental christian world !
