Aged serigraph with Saint John the Forerunner, crafted on canvas with golden-red background, on natural wood. The icon can be hung on a wall or placed on a flat surface with the stand included.
One of the "great" saints of our Church, Saint John the Baptist, lived an ascetic life in the desert of Judah until the age of 30. Through the phrase "Repent, the Kingdom of the Heaven is at hand" prepared the ground of the advent of Jesus. This is why Christians commonly refer to John as the precursor or forerunner of Jesus. Saint John the Baptist celebrates on 7 January.
