Pyrography with the Depiction of Apostle Andrew

An excellent icon that has been created with the pyrography technique and depicts Apostle Andrew the Protoklitos.

Andrew, a fisherman by profession, came from Bethsaida in Galilee and was the brother of the Apostle Peter. Because he was the first in the group of disciples to be called by the Lord, he was called Protocletos.

Andrew (along with John the Evangelist) were at first disciples of John the Baptist who one day, showing them Jesus, said to them, “And the Praise of God is the sin of the world.” The two simple fishermen were so moved that without any hesitation and reservation they immediately left their teacher and followed Jesus.

Apostle Andrew preached in Bithynia, the Black Sea, Thrace, Macedonia and Epirus. Eventually, he ended up in Achaia where, with his teaching and miraculous healings of patients, he irritated the proconsul and, at the urging of pagan priests, arrested Andrew and crucified him on an X-shaped cross.

Pyrography: Features

Pyrography is an art that attracts many creators because of the impressive results that can be achieved. It is a painting technique where the two primordial elements of Nature, wood and fire, are used. With patience and attention to detail, the monks create the fire-painted image, paying great attention to the error as it is not corrected as it is done with a pencil.

This image combines the art of engraving with that of pyrography, giving an excellent embossed result.
