Gold printing with Sandblasting with Agios Dimitrios

An amazing gold print with Agios Dimitrios, the patron saint and patron saint of Thessaloniki. In the person of Saint Demetriou, Thessaloniki sees its patron and liberator. Not only because the liberation of the city from the Turks in 1912 coincided with the feast of the Saint, but also because, as tradition says, before the liberation of Thessaloniki, its inhabitants saw the Saint on horseback in the White Tower encouraging them. According to Christian tradition, Saint Demetrios lived and was martyred in Thessaloniki under Diocletian, while he was the son of an aristocratic family and an officer, but this status did not prevent him from accepting the Orthodox faith and being baptized as a Christian.
