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.
