Description

St Nona is the Mother of St David of Wales.

When she was still a teenager, she was raped and then hunted down by the pagans of the region, who wanted to kill her and her unborn child. They had received a vision regarding this child, that he would destroy their pagan gods and would teach the world about Christ.

When the time came for St David to be born, God allowed a terrible storm to take place, so the Saint cannot be found and killed while giving birth. There is a tradition in Wales that the marks of her hands, as she was holding on to a rock during the storm, are still visible to this day.

The icon is a very high quality reproduction of an original Mull Monastery commission.

It is mounted on durable, light wood, with round edges and a hanging hole.

Our original commissions are unique, never repeated and made using local photographs of the actual geography of the Isles. Most of our colours are sourced from the Book of Kells (made on the Isle of Iona during the Celtic millennium) and we try to combine Byzantine and Egyptian iconography, as a recognition of the historical, cultural and spiritual connections between the Desert Fathers and the Celtic Saints.

Thank you for supporting the Monastery and the Christian heritage of the Celtic Isles.

Offer an icon to a friend, and introduce them too to these wonderful Saints.
