A window into the spiritual world
An icon is initially considered to be a sacred image that one should honour with respect. In the tradition of the Orthodox Church, icons depict figures or events from the Bible and act as a kind of window into the world beyond. As old heroes have become collectables, they have largely lost their significance as devotional images.

Order a personalized icon.
Tibirke Kunst creates icons to order. The text of the icons is mainly taken from the New Testament, and you can order a specific text that determines the icon's design. The text is reproduced in the original language, Ancient Greek, but with a translation and possibly a reference to the scripture on the back of the icon.
