Danish artist Charlotte Weppenaar presents a painting of the Transfiguration Icon to Archbishop Tutu – 19 June 2013

It took a year of prayer and fine brush work for Danish artist Charlotte Weppenaar to produce  this Transfiguration Icon (sometimes called Metamorphosis) for Archbishop Tutu. She presented the painting to the Archbishop on 19 June 2013. The painting, 45cm X 36cm in dimension, follows the original Byzantine Icon tradition. Painted on a wooden board it contains 23.75 carat gold leaf in three layers. The Archbishop said he would hang the Icon in his chapel.
