About Elizabeth Chakravarty

I make traditional Orthodox Christian icons following the existing protypes from Russia, Greece, Crete, and other important monasteries and Orthodox sites around the world. I use patristic sermons particularly from 100 AD to 800 AD to fill in the blanks created by the iconoclastic struggles of the 700's in which many icons were destroyed. My deepest goal is to make icons which are pastoral for the person or community who commission them. Their liturgical function is to be a center of veneration, an aid in concentration and giver of blessings to the person who is praying before them. All veneration goes to Our Lord Jesus Christ as the ultimate prototype. Saints are saints only to the degree that they incarnate Christ's love for humankind.See MoreRead Less

Elizabeth has made an icon of the Nativity of Chirst which stands in our chapel in Rönnäs, Leksand here in Sweden, to the edification and joy of us all! It reflects deep theological insights and high artistic competence which toghether results in great beauty."

Bess's icons are truly wonderful. They are inspiring in their beauty and one has no doubt that much prayer goes into each one. I couldn't recommend her work more highly!"

Bess is the most amazing artist I have ever known! Her work comes from her heart and soul. Anyone who is lucky enough to have a piece of her art work is truly blessed."

Betsy is the rare iconographer who continues to study her images from early Christianity through the Byzantine period to the present for the "mind of the Church.""

Elizabeth's Reply

Thanks Jamie, This is exactly what I do to find good prototypes for icons. I also read the church father's sermons on the feasts and other Saints.

Bess writes icons with utmost care and attention, to match her skill and craftsmanship. There is true love in each piece, I can attest to that."
