Hand painted icon of Saint Makarius of Egypt, made in Mount Athos, on natural wood. The icon is delivered in a wooden box.
Saint Makarius was born in 301 AD. in a village in Egypt and lived during the reign of Theodosius the Great (379 - 395 AD). At the age of 30 he retired to the desert of Nitria and Syria, where he lived for 60 years. Saint Makarios became a disciple of Saint Antonius the Great and at the age of 40 he was ordained an Elder. He was honored with the foresighting gift and healed many sick people. His grace became known and many people travelled to the desert to visit him. Thus, Saint Macarius, in order to remain uninterrupted in prayer, was forced to build an underground cave in the desert. Saint Makarius slept peacefully at the age of 90, while exiled to a small island in the Nile by the Arian Bishop of Alexandria, Lucius.
