Icon of St Agnes.
Agnes of Rome (c. 291 – c. 304) is the patron saint of young girls. She is also the patron saint of chastity, rape survivors and the Children of Mary. She is often represented with a lamb, the symbol of her virgin innocence, and a palm branch, like other martyrs.
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.
St Agnes 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").
