St. Spyridon is an example of a Russian/Greek icon. H 11 3⁄4 ” W 8 3⁄4 ” on a panel painted with Egg Tempera over gold leaf  was badly delaminating. The back is signs of a woodworm infestation. This painting had been cleaned in a previous restoration with a very damaging water-soluble cleaner that has severely abraded the painted surface. The paint is cracking and there are several flaking losses.
