This lovely diptych, made in Greece, features a carved decorative exterior and a pair of golden backed icons on the inside. A perfect stocking stuffer or small gift!
I now try to keep this Diptych everywhere I go with me, as it is tiny and pocket sized, yet has sublime detail of Christ and the Mother Theotokos. The golden backdrop especially reacts wonderfully to light reflecting off of it, producing a dazzling effect that unfortunately, is not presented in the photograph of this page. Nevertheless, it is perfect for personal prayer on any occasion.
I have been wanting a small icon to pray before if I am out and about, or if I want to go outside to get some fresh air during my morning and evening prayers, so I ordered this, and WOW! I am so impressed by the quality! The sides are crooked on the hinge and do not align, but I don't even care because this is gorgeous! The print is so crisp, and the gold foil is SO beautiful, it invokes awe in me. Definitely a must-have for those who want to make their prayers on the go (or at home!) a bit more special!
I do a lot of traveling and like to carry a small crucifix and a pocket prayer book with me. This little diptych is absolutely lovely, with all the great quality you'd normally expect from a full size Legacy Icon! It will make a fantastic addition to my traveling icon corner which I use to pray away from home. It it would also make a great addition to any daily carry, to remind oneself of the constant presence of Our Lord and the Theotokos in our lives!
The dimensions are roughly a length of 1&3/4" and a width of 1&1/4". These aren't exact, but I hope that gives a rough idea of this diptych's portability!
I purchased this for my godsons for Pascha. They are beautiful and just right for carrying with them to school or for beside their bed.
