Created by the hand of American iconographer Brother Simeon Davis, this original icon
of Our Lady of Lourdes exemplifies the radiant colors, fine detail, and fidelity to classical iconography that has made the Monastery Icons collection the most beloved Christian art over the past thirty-three years. This icon is one of a kind and will no longer be available once it is sold.
Brother Simeon's depiction of Our Lady's appearance was modelled after Saint Bernadette's description of the Holy Virgin and on photographs of the saint. At the Virgin's feet flows a stream that would become a river of miracles for the world.
Created in the year 2002, this icon is painted on 1/4-inch non-tempered artist's hardboard measuring 16" x 20". The artist used matte fluid acrylics which replicate classic egg tempera. The background is painted. The icon has a protective artist's grade arcylic varnish.
