PANAGIA PANTOVASILISSA

Iconographic Work

CHURCH OF PANAGIA PANTOVASILISSA

Halkidiki

A historic, rich and tidy village of Halkidiki, which was formed in the course of time by locals and refugees. Love wins in the end and the result is obvious.

The Church of Panagia, made of hope and stone, is located in the most central part of the village.

After the roof renovation, we started painting ab initio.

Inspired by its new look of an impressive arched basilica, we created the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary on the main front, above the Holy Step, with references to the most glorious moments of the Orthodox aesthetic tradition, developing further our new proposal.

Consequently, we delivered sections from a pre-designed, complete iconographic program, that we had the foresight to establish at the beginning of the collaboration for the whole Temple.

"The result of the iconographic work of the Christodoulou brothers, is really impressive and we invite the whole Greek community to visit our church to admire the icons"

Judge Marina Corodemus

“We’re not doing this just because we want the church to look nice or colorful, ιt’s about what we believe. Iconography is so crucial to the daily life of the Orthodox Christian.”

Placement

Using seasonal and construction methods (acrylic media and rock and metal powders) we paint directly on properly prepared walls, either directly or indirectly by placing canvases already painted in our workshop.
In this way we ensure longevity and safety from future technical repair problems.
