Heritage Studio works to revive the ancient art of Orthodox wooden icons for travellers. We do it with the blessing of Vladimir, the metropolitan of St. Petersburg and Ladoga.
The tradition of carved low-relief icons had come to Russia from Byzantium together with Christianity. Monochrome carved wooden icons no more than a palm in the size were called in Russian PIADNITSA. Another name was TRAVEL or PILGRIM ICONS, for these icons were made from solid wood and often were taken by pilgrims with themselves in their trips. Now you can see the rebirth of this tradition.
