Description

A limited edition solid hardwood icon of Mother of God of the Sign.

Works by Brother Richard Maidwell, C.Ss.R.

Richard Maidwell was born and brought up in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and proudly regards himself as Anglo-African. He became a Redemptorist brother at his first profession in 1984. From the age of 14 he became interested in the study and history of icons; at the same age he began writing his own. His break came in 1989 when the provincial council sent Brother Richard on a course to the Apostolate of Eastern Churches in the Netherlands, where he studied iconography and Byzantine liturgy for two years. Following that time until the present, Brother Richard has worked on private commissions from various countries and produced a wide collection of icons.

Icons are an ancient Christian style of art, continuously employed down the centuries, particularly in the Eastern Church. The style of icons, which may at first appear flat and archaic, are meant to bring us face to face with the person or scene portrayed, thereby drawing us deeper into prayer and meditation.

They're a beautiful gift for your loved ones or a lovely religious decorative piece for your home.
