Rema Icon

In January 2007, a large 15th century Marian Panel, the Rema Icon was cleaned and repaired.
This Icon, situated on the tiny Island of Rema in Lake Tana, was suffering from the dampness which resulted in the progressive flaking away of the fine paint layers. A split in the panel was also stabilised.
This and the Hayq Icon (see below) are amongst the two most celebrated icons in Ethiopia.
