    Glad to find it!

    Very nice icon. I am trying to find icons for all the children in our Sunday School ages 3 - 9. We have an activity in our classroom where a child may choose an icon to place at our prayer corner or any place in the room. Since we have an Emmelia, I purchased this one and am very happy with it.

    My family and I were chrismated last Easter. We were able to purchase icons of our saints and are so happy with the product. These Icons will last our lifetimes I'm sure. The color on the icon is beautiful and the wood is as well. We are so happy to add these to our prayer wall. Thank you!
