Sandblasting gold printing with Saints Constantine and Helen

An amazing gold print with Saints Constantine and Helen.

Saint Constantine wears a purple cloak and a gold cord decorated, which is wrapped and symbolizes the shroud and the resurrection of Christ. With a pink cloak and gold cord, Saint Helena is depicted wearing a blue head cover.

The faces of Saints Constantine and Helen express austerity while at the same time giving off a heavenly sweetness.

Saint Helen is the patron saint of blacksmiths because along with the Holy Cross she found the iron nails with which they crucified Christ, while the Greek people have associated many traditions with her name. Along with her son Constantine, they are also considered patrons of pilgrims to the Holy Land.
