St Thérèse of Lisieux

St Thérèse of Lisieux


Icon of Thérèse of Lisieux, known as The Little Flower of Jesus or simply The Little Flower.

Thérèse felt an early call to religious life, and became a nun at 15 years old, joining two of her older sisters in the Carmelite community of Lisieux, Normandy.  She died at aged 24, following a slow and painful fight against tuberculosis.

This is part of the series of religious saints, which derives from a range of sources, including manuscripts, other icons and mosaics. Some icons include 24 carat gold highlights.

Thérèse is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished. 

This is one of a series of religious saints; see my gallery for other images.

The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
