Znamenie – Complete

I have completed the fourth and fifth steps of my first icon today.  Znamenie, the fourth step, leads to graphia or etching.  I don’t have any pictures of that yet as it was only completed at tea time (that’s 4pm ish in England!).  However, here are some pictures of the completed znamenie which I am quite pleased with.  The graphia was quite daunting, because of course once you have made an etching mark it can’t be undone.  However, it didn’t prove to be as difficult as I’d imagined; although the “taught bow” lines were the most challenging!!
