This is a hand-painted icon of St. George (approx. dimensions: 8 1/4" x 11"), a tempera-on-wood reproduction of the original icon.

"George, a Captain in the Roman Army, tore up in defiance an edict of Emperor Diocletian ordering the persecution of Christians. He battled the devil, symbolized by the dragon, and saved the Holy Church. He rides a white horse that indicates God's grace carrying him to the heroism of martyrdom. Constantine the Great built a great church over his tomb in Lyda of Palestine. The name George means 'Tiller of the Earth.'

As liberator of captives, defender of the poor,
physician of the ailing, and champion of Kings,
beseech Christ our God, O Great Martyr George,
Standard Bearer, for the salvation of our souls."
- Apolytikion of St. George, Translation by Narthex Press
