The 14 Holy Helpers are Acacius, Barbara, Blaise, Catherine of Alexandria, Christopher , Cyriacus, Dionysius of Paris, Erasmus, Eustace, George, Margaret, Pantaleon, Vitus and Giles. 

St. Margaret of Antioch was one of the most popular saints in medieval times and is one of the most common subjects for wall paintings in England.

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 Margaret 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 and it has acrylic jewel highlights. 

This is one of a series of traditional and orthodox saints; see my gallery for other images.
