F.A.Q

All our plaques, icons and crosses are made by our workshop here in Athens, Greece. They are hand-carved/finished and it does take a lot of time and effort to produce them. They are not made by some machine in China. We guarantee their quality. They are based on contemporary Byzantine Hagiography and are designed by Monks at Mount Athos.

What makes our icons, plaques and crosses particular unique is their odor! One of the three ingredients they are made of is the incense from Mount Athos. As a result, when you place them on your wall, the spot around will emit a very distinct odor creating an atmosphere similar to an Orthodox Church or to a Monastery! The more you have, or the bigger they are the stronger the odor will be!

We really wish we could transfer this pleasant odor over the internet for you to smell!

No! The odor will never fade. According to the surrounding temperature its level might rise or fall a bit but it will not fade.

No, these plaques are made for indoors use only.

It should not be exposed to direct sunlight and to heat above 50ºC/122.00ºF
