I made the panels of the paintings/icons with wooden boards dating back to the 17th century. The panels are two centimetres thick and were part of ancient pieces of furniture. The panels are restored. I then glued a cotton cloth on the wooden boards and created a mould from rabbit-skin glue and white gesso. On these boards I then drew and painted the images: gold leaf background - 22 or 24 carat, hand chiselling in some kind of painting/icon - and egg tempera, following the ancient Byzantine tradition.
