This is a unique, signed original hand-painted devotional icon for Manannán. His full name, Manannán Mac Lir, means Manannán Son of the Sea. A liminal, trickster-like deity associated with magic, Otherworld travel, and the Isle of Man, He is said to navigate the ocean in a ship called Wave-Sweeper, drawn by sea-foam horses, and He had a cloak that wrapped him in illusions and invisibility. His pose in this painting is partly inspired by the famous Northern Irish statue, and He is accompanied by a crane, one of the animals associated with Him.
Devotional icon paintings are hand-painted in acrylics on cradled wood panels, using metallic colors and accents that catch the glow of light. Panels are 6″ by 8″, with a wide cradled back, which allows the icon to stand upright on an altar or shrine; or it can easily be hung on a wall. Each individual icon is a hand-painted, numbered and dated original. This also means each icon is unique and may look slightly different in painted details from the photograph, but will employ similar colors and consistent design composition.
These icons are made as time allows and based on demand from interested folks. If the icon you’re interested in is not currently available, you can place a back-order. PLEASE NOTE: back-ordered icons may take up to 6 weeks to complete and ship, as they need to be HAND PAINTED in my available time. If you’d like to request a new icon design, you can place a custom order here.
