Icon of St Antony
« on: March 09, 2012, 11:13:52 AM »
Living in London as I do I've just discovered how difficult it is to find an icon of St Antony.

I bought one at St Antony's monastery (Egypt) but I'm having trouble with my order with St Antony's (USA).

Please, in the unlikely event you have a spare icon or know where I can purchase one, please let me know.

I don't mind what style it's in but I quite liked the ancient Coptic style.

Thanks

Well, this doesn't seem to be Coptic, sorry. It was the first thing that came up, though.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
