This complex set of silk vestments was created especially for the period of Great Lent.
The orarion, with its Georgian inspired vine of tendrils and flowers is adorned with icons of St. Andrew of Crete, St. Ephrem, St. Gregory and others who feature prominently in the liturgical cycle of the Lenten services. On the sleeves of the stiharion are the icons of the Triumph of Orthodoxy and the Ladder of Divine Ascent, whilst on the back we see the Adoration of the Holy Cross. The prayer of St. Ephrem is embroidered above the heavily worked border at the bottom of the stiharion. The cuffs show icons of the Annunciation.
This stiharion can be modified in colour and choice of icons to suit another feast or period in the liturgical cycle.
The set of vestments for deacon includes stiharion, orarion and cuffs.
As with all our made to measure vestments, you can add any of the hand embroidered icons seen on our website to the various pieces of vesture.
