Religious Icons

D.T. Mistick & Co. provides complete restoration services by a world-renowned expert trained at The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Because icons are mainly painted on wooden panels with egg tempera and linseed oil varnish, they are often susceptible to mold and insects. Also many icons are displayed at eye level or on stands, and also behind burning candles. These locations make the icon vulnerable to scratches, falls, burns, and damage from candle soot. Many icons have survived major disasters.
