The Hagiographeion of the Holy Convent of The Great Martyr SaintGeorge the Trophy-Bearer, Avlides, was funded and erected by the Foundress and First Abbess of our Convent, Reverend Paisia, Great Schema Nun, and student of her late Spiritual Father, Geronta Archimandrite Sophrony Sakharov of Essex, Great Britain, and her late pious Photis Kontoglou.
Our Hagiographion artisans are, ONLY, Orthodox Icons of the Eastern Orthodox Great Church of Christ. Our technique combines its strict Byzantine and Dogmatic line of Photis Kontoglou, with characteristics’ of the Cretian and Macedonian School, capturing at the same time, the Mount Athos spirituality.
Our Hagiography is made with the traditional use of the applications and techniques of Byzantine Hagiography, perfectly preserving the Byzantine Tradition, having won the admiration and praise of the Great and Renowned Names in the Field of Art.
After fifty-six full years of experiences and after hagiography dozens of Churches, Monasteries, Convents, Royalty, Patriarchs, Archbishops, and Bishops Collections all over the world we have acquired the excellent knowledge and technique of the subject of Hagiography.
Our designs are exquisitely original and unique, to such an extent that they are copied by most of today’s hagiographers, we have the ability to design any Byzantine theme in any combination and if requested, but always in the context of Orthodox Byzantine Dogmatology.
Our monastic status and the uninterrupted mental prayer that we practice as well as our high level of education enables us to process precisely all the subjects for hagiography and to formulate them Orthodox, in the spirit of truth without any traces of heresy and malice.
Each work is curated by a group of hagiographic Nuns, with cooperation, exchange of knowledge, unceasing prayer, always under the watchful eye of our Holy Foundress and Abbess Paisia.
Every Icon is done slowly, with care and responsibility. The materials used are forever and our technique is perfection. Each Hagiography takes all the time needed to decorate without haste. We have the ability to create simple, complex works, works with 24-carat gold leaf, with unique designs and carvings with original decorative designs, with special representations, with enamel decoration, and with a decoration of semi-precious stones if requested.
Each Icon finishing is photographed, recorded in a special book with a separate code, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, bearing a date, registration code, and the Convent’s Seal of the Hagiography, as a guarantee of each unique handmade work.
With our polite initiative, the names of the customers of the Holy Hagiography are also recorded in the Book of Remembrance of the pious Christian donors of the Holy Convent.
