Silouan the Athonite

Silouan the Athonite


Icon of St Silouan the Athonite, also sometimes referred to as Silouan of Athos, Saint Silvanus the Athonite or Staretz Silouan.

Born Simeon Ivanovich Antonov in 1866 to Russian Orthodox parents from Sovsk in Russia, Silouan went to Mount Athos at the age of 27 and became a monk.

“The man who cries out against evil men but does not pray for them will never know the grace of God.”

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

Silouan the Athonite 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 traditional and orthodox saints; see my gallery for other images.

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