St Basil the Great Icon
This beautiful icon of St. Basil the Great was written by Igor Mitasov of Moscow, Russia. He painted the icon during the Nativity fast of 2001, finishing in January 2002. Mr. Mitasov has generously donated the icon to St Basil the Great Orthodox Church in Poquoson. He used well-prepared solid hardwood board for this icon to help preserve it from damage. In 2007 an actual relic of St. Basil the Great was donated to the Mission by the Russian Cathedral in Washington, DC and embedded in the foot of the Icon for the Faithful to venerate
Mr. Igor Mitasov is a graduate of the College of Architecture in Moscow. He has devoted his talent and art to God for many years.
