This hand crafted egg is made from a solid piece of wood by Russian artist in the traditional iconographic style of the Russian Orthodox Church, preserving the famous image of the SAINT NICHOLAS WONDER WORKER. The image of the icon is made using a high quality polygraphic machine. The image is protected with layers of clear lacquer. The egg, as a symbol of life, makes this a meaningful and unique gift for anyone. Egg comes with a hand carved and lacquered stand.

When Vladimir the Great brought Christianity to Russia in AD 988, stories of Saint Nicholas came along, too. Nicholas is greatly revered in Russia as the protector of the weak from the strong, the oppressed from the oppressor, and the poor from the rich— he is the Russian champion of the disadvantaged. Saint Nicholas is the Orthodox tradition's Wonder or Miracle Worker. As such he is Russia's most beloved saint; his icon often appearing on triptychs with Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Numerous Russian cathedrals, monasteries, and churches have been dedicated to St. Nicholas. In villages, St. Nicholas was revered as merciful intercessor for working people. Merchants and others revere St. Nicholas the Miracle-worker as the patron of all who travel on land or sea, and have dedicated marketplace churches to him. Ship captains carry St. Nicholas icons on board ship. Drivers keep his icon on the dashboard, hoping for protection from accident. His icons have been prized gifts for weddings and birthdays.

 Note: any glare on pictures is a reflection of the lacquer finish.
