Our Saint Nicolas and Panagia with Child Icon is handmade on wood by the three generations of the family of Nikolenia from the small village of Tagarades outside of Thessaloniki.
On many other occasions after his death as well as during his lifetime, Saint Nicholas has miraculously assisted ships in distress and people making voyages, and so is venerated as the protector of all who sail the seas. Thus, one day during a gale, he appeared at the helm of a ship in distress and brought it safely to port; and on another occasion, he rescued a passenger who fell overboard crying, “Saint Nicholas, help me!” and at once found himself at home surrounded by his astounded family.
Approximately 6 1/2” tall and each side is 4 1/2’ wide. Comes hinged.
