St. James the Greater

This is an icon I wrote for my husband, whose name is James. There are several James in the Bible. This James is the brother of John the Evangelist, both of whom were known as the Sons of Zebedee, and were apostles of our Lord. The gessoed board is 8 x 10 with a curved top. The background is 24 k. gold and is painted in egg tempera.
