The central image depicts St. Nicholas of Myra bringing back to life three boys who had been killed and butchered by an evil innkeeper who intended to serve their bodies as pickled meat. In the border I drew another of the saint’s well-known miracles, his rescuing a ship from sinking in a violent storm.

I can color this print by hand, using pigment-based calligraphers’ inks applied with brushes. I use 23k gold leaf and/or palladium leaf for the illuminated details. Please note that the brilliance of the leaf does not show well in the scanned image. Each hand-colored print is unique. The one you receive will not be identical to the one shown here.

The hand-colored print with illuminated details costs $453. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address.
