21 New Martyrs of Libya Icon - S100

Ex. Tax


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 if they would like to make a donation to help the families that these and other martyrs leave behind.

    Unhappy with order service.

    Posted by Jim on Dec 19th 2019

    I wanted only one of the two icons recently ordered on the Coptic Martyrs, the larger one. I tried to correct things, but the web site would not allow me to do it. You need to list the phone number to Legacy Icons not the order company. I like the quality of your icons, however I am unlikely to buy again. I like to talk with you, not a computer. ----- Legacy Icons Response: Unfortunately we are a small company and do not have the resources to offer full-time telephone support. Our email customer support system is the only way we can reliably offer customer support. Please contact us right away via our email form, or if you placed a duplicate order, make a note in the Order Notes section of the checkout form that you want to cancel the earlier order.

    Beautiful icon

    Posted by Susan Tychnowicz on Mar 19th 2019

    This is a beautiful icon, which is also nicely mounted. I purchased this as a gift to my church. What a wonderful witness these modern days martyrs are to all of us. Pray for us O Holy Martyrs of Libya!

    Gorgeous Coptic Martyrs

    Posted by Elias Anthony 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 love this icon. The colors are so beautiful. Highest quality image. I was deeply moved the first time I saw this icon online, and am so glad to have my own copy.

    This icon sits in my theology classroom where I can easily contemplate it. There are 2 ways of describing it: beautiful and inspiring! Thank you.

    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!
