In the serene expanse of spiritual tradition that Orthodox Christianity offers, the icons stand as silent yet potent testimonies of faith, each telling stories of divine mysteries, saintly lives, and celestial intercessions. Among these revered images, the Icon of Saint Spyridon, the Bishop of Trimythous, occupies a place of special veneration. This Orthodox Gift Set, featuring a silver-plated .999 version of the Saint Spyridon icon alongside a set of prayer candles, represents a significant embodiment of devotion, art, and the timeless continuum of faith. Crafted with reverence and a deep sense of tradition, it bridges the heavenly and the earthly, providing believers with a tangible piece of sacred heritage that enriches their spiritual journey. The Enduring Legacy of Saint Spyridon Saint Spyridon, whose life and miracles are celebrated across the Christian world, particularly within the Orthodox tradition, was known for his simple faith and extraordinary miracles. A shepherd by origin, Spyridon became the Bishop of Trimythous, on the island of Cyprus, in the 4th century. His humble beginnings only amplified the magnitude of his faith and the miracles attributed to him, making his story a beacon of hope and divine power accessible to the simplest of believers. His most famous miracle at the First Ecumenical Council, turning a potsherd into gold, water, and earth, demonstrated the unity of the Holy Trinity, marking him as a formidable defender of the faith against heresy. A Masterpiece of Sacred Art The icon of Saint Spyridon, covered in pure silver .999 and adorned using PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) technology, stands as a masterpiece that captures the essence of the saint’s divine legacy. This technology ensures that the icon remains unaltered by time, preserving its beauty and sacredness for generations. The use of traditional colors of iconography, combined with the innovative techniques of silver plating, reflects a harmony of tradition and modernity that characterizes the Orthodox Gift Set. The icon is meticulously handcrafted from MDF, a material chosen for its durability and suitability for detailed artisanship. Measuring 180mm by 130mm, it is designed to command presence, whether it graces a home altar, a living room, or the interior of a church. The availability of the icon in both gold and silver versions, as well as a coloured variant, ensures that it can cater to personal tastes and fit various settings of religious decor. The Prayer Candle Set: Illuminating Paths of Devotion The inclusion of 12 wax candles, each bearing the prayer Save and Protect and the image of Saint Spyridon, introduces a multi-sensory dimension to the gift set. These candles, measuring 195mm in height and 8mm in diameter, serve not just as sources of physical light but as beacons of spiritual illumination, guiding the faithful in moments of prayer and reflection. The act of lighting a candle in front of the icon, engaging in silent prayer or meditation, creates a personal sanctuary of peace and presence, where the divine seems just a whisper away. Consecrated Artistry: The Andcross Tradition Every component of this Orthodox Gift Set is consecrated, ensuring that these are not merely artistic representations but sacred objects infused with spiritual significance. Crafted in the European Union by special order for the Orthodox Art Corporation Andcross, each set is a testament to the organization's commitment to fostering a deep connection between the faithful and the divine through religious art. The Andcross Artisan Icons are renowned for their beauty and spiritual depth, with each piece reflecting the rich heritage of Orthodox art and the meticulous craftsmanship of its creators. Saint Spyridon in Orthodox Iconography The veneration of Saint Spyridon in Orthodox iconography dates back centuries, with his depictions serving as a source of comfort and spiritual intercession for the faithful. Often depicted in his episcopal attire, carrying the Gospel and wearing his characteristic shepherd's hat, the icon of Saint Spyridon embodies the shepherd's care he extends to all who seek his guidance and prayers. This modern rendition of the saint’s icon continues the tradition of portraying his humility, his miraculous powers, and his unyielding faith, offering believers a visual and spiritual connection to one of Orthodoxy's most beloved saints. The Role of Icons and Prayer in Orthodox Spirituality In Orthodox Christianity, icons are more than just religious decor or artistic expressions; they are windows to the divine, serving as focal points for prayer and gateways to deeper spiritual understanding. The Icon of Saint Spyridon, paired with prayer candles, enriches the personal and communal spaces of worship, inviting a spirit of sanctity and reflection. This gift set is not only a decoration but a functional element of daily spiritual practice, enhancing the rhythm of prayer and the experience of God's immanent presence. Craftsmanship and Material Detail Crafted from MDF and adorned with silver .999, the Saint Spyridon icon exemplifies the fusion of traditional artistry with contemporary material science. The choice of MDF ensures the icon's durability and stability, while the silver plating and PVD technology protect its surface, keeping the sacred image vibrant and intact over time. This careful selection of materials and techniques speaks to the devotion and respect that goes into creating each icon, ensuring they serve as lasting vessels of faith and beauty. The Orthodox Gift Set featuring the Icon of Saint Spyridon, Bishop of Trimythous, is a testament to the enduring power of faith, the beauty of Orthodox tradition, and the deep well of spirituality that icons represent. In bringing together the sacred artistry of the icon with the illuminating practice of prayer through candles, this set offers a comprehensive medium for spiritual engagement and devotion. It stands as a bridge connecting believers to the divine, to the rich traditions of the Orthodox faith, and to the miraculous legacy of Saint Spyridon himself, guiding the faithful towards a deeper communion with God. In a world where the tangible and the spiritual increasingly seek harmonization, this gift set emerges as a beacon of faith, artistry, and tradition, inviting all who receive it to embark on a profound journey of spiritual discovery and devotion.

Beautiful Christian set with St Spiridon icon and wax candles. It’s a masterpiece of craftsmanship and arrived in a pretty little box. Can’t wait to give this to my sister-in-law for her birthday (she is from Corfu like the Saint). Many thanks to Andcross team and God’s blessing!

It was my first puchase online. But my friend already bought icons from Andcross so I was not worried about the quality of the icon. It truly corresponds to the photo shown and met all my expectations. Good quality and beautiful to the eye. I am very pleased!
