Artist's Description

The original of this icon was made of cut paper and mixed media. St. Hilda is an important saint to Anglicans and English Catholics. She was one of the prominent English abesses of the seventh century. Hilda presided over a joint monastery of men and women, and her prestige and influence as a church leader in her time were like that of a bishop—hence she is often pictured with a crosier like that of a bishop. The border is my version of a celtic vine and the architectural frame for the figure has Anglo-Saxon characteristics. The five bishop miters are for the five men of St. Hilda’s house who became bishops.
