Icon of Saint Nicholas in a ship

Framed authentic replica in relief of a rare Greek icon of Saint Nicholas, protector of seamen. The inscription in the upper right reads "Saint Nicholas rescues the sailors from the waves."

The icon is handcarved in Athens by a Greek master sculptor-silversmith out of pure silver (.999). To better show the details of the carving, the artist has plated the silver surface with smoked 24K gold. Finally the icon is decorated with silver cloisonne inserts, garnets and agates.

Dimensions: icon: 7" by 5", w/frame 11.5" by 9.5"
