In 2014 Aidan Hart Icons received an exciting commission for St George’s Orthodox Church in Houston, Texas. The parish asked for two mosaics, one depicting the Crucifixion and the other the Descent into Hell. Each mosaic is to measure around 5 x 3.5 metres (16.5 x 11.5 feet) and will be installed in their renovated and expanded church.
Work began on the mosaics at the beginning of 2015 and is progressing well. Because of their large scale, we have split the mosaics up into around 30 panels which will be shipped to Houston and joined together on site.
We hope you enjoy this selection of images of different panels from the Crucifixion mosaic. You can see a brief explanation of our mosaic technique by clicking here. We’ll continue to add photographs as the works progress…
