21 New Martyrs of Libya Icon - S100

$9.95
Quantity:

Product Description

On February 15, 2015, the Moslem terrorists of Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) executed these 21 Coptic Orthodox men for their Christian faith. The video which showed the brutal beheadings called them "people of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian Church." Six days later, the martyrs were glorified by Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II. He established their feast day on Amshir 8 (February 15).

This icon was painted by Tony Rezk in the Neo-Coptic iconographic style. The martyrs are wearing orange jumpsuits, as they were dressed at the time, and they are kneeling on the Mediterranean coast. The water is red with their blood, and 21 crowns of martyrdom descend from heaven.

Mr. Rezk invites people to visit copticorphans.org if they would like to make a donation to help the families that these and other martyrs leave behind.

  1. Gorgeous Coptic Martyrs 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 9th 2018

    I selected the masterpiece of this icon and I couldn't be happier. It is beautiful and signifies the continued sacrifice of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

    It is no coincidence that persecution is wrought upon those descendants of the first Christians. Let us not forget and help the Copts bear witness. Amen.

    I really liked this. I just kind of wish that the Iconographer's signature was not as prominent as it is in this icon. Besides that, a fantastic icon!

  7. Didn't expect the Power..... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 17th 2017

    I didn't expect the power the image gives off; it's beautifully painted. And what I love even more is that on the back of the icon is a list of the Coptic fishermen who were martyred; I now can pray their names every night.

  8. A good reminder 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 10th 2017

    I chose this icon out of respect for the Coptic witness of Jesus and His Gospel. 21 ordinary men who received the grace and had the guts to follow Jesus to the end! Respect!

    Posted by on Oct 31st 2016

    A fine icon, even if signed, reminding one to pray for our Middle Eastern brothers and sisters in the Lord. There, but for the grace of God, go you and I.
