Icons of the Chinese Martyrs
of the Boxer Rebellion

Chinese Martyrs

by the hand of Maria Sigala

The Chinese Martyrs icon mounted at the entrance to the Orthodox Church of St. Luke the Evangelist in Hong Kong was commissioned to the famed Greek Iconographer Maria Sigala at the turn of the millenium. It was delivered to Hong Kong from Athens more than a year afterwards and has blessed numerous occasions and feasts at the Church and the Metropolitanate.

Of the three Chinese Martyrs icon commonly seen on the web (the other two are the one by the Transfiguration Monastery and one by the Synodal Church), this is the only one that is domiciled in Asia, in China in fact. The others are venerated and domiciled in the Western world. This icon is quite sizeable (approx 29" by 47") and heavy, and is carefully and securely framed and mounted at St. Luke's.

Two Icons of St. Mitrophan

St Mitrophan

by the hand of Seraphim Lim

St Mitrophan

by the hand of Nana Quparadze

 

I attach herewith two more Icons of St. Mitrophan. They are both domiciled and venerated in Asia, in our Metropolitanate: one by Mr. Seraphim Lim of Singapore and another by Miss Nana Quparadze of Georgia. Mr. Lim is a learned and active member of the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia, and Miss Quparadze wrote her icon when she was worshipping with the Orthodox Church of the Resurrection (our parish church in Singapore). She has since returned to Europe.

If you would like to use these icons, please acknowledge credit to the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia.

Best regards,
