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.
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.
by the hand of Seraphim Lim
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.
