​​Saint Sharbel Makhlouf  (Youssef) was very pious, so much so that his fellow villagers used to call him “the Saint.” Daily he used to take his small herd to the fields where he would let them graze while he went to a nearby grotto to fall into deep prayer in front of an icon of the Virgin Mary. This grotto became his altar and his first hermitage.

In 1851, at the age of 23, he left his family and village to start his first year of novitiate in the monastery of Mayfouk. He chose the name “Sharbel” in honor of a second century martyr in the Antiochene Church.

In 1852, he moved to the monastery of Annaya for his second year of novitiate. There, on November 1, 1853, he professed his monastic vows of chastity, poverty and obedience.

He received his formation in theology at the monastery of Saints Cyprian and Justina in Kfifan between the years 1853 and 1859. Father Nemtallah Kassab El-Hardini (canonized on May 17, 2004) was the teacher of Saint Sharbel and his fellow seminarians.


Brushed Aluminum Icon

Our stunning brushed aluminum icons provide depth and texture to every work of art. Made with a silver brushed aluminum Dibond panel, also known as AluDibond Butler Finish Silver, these icons are visually breathtaking and built to last a lifetime. They're durable and incredibly lightweight, making them ideal for even the largest of formats and with highly saturated colors.


  • The icon is matte and glare-free, so no matter where you hang it, the light won't interfere with its beauty. 
  • The colors on this print are highly saturated, even in large monochrome areas, ensuring the artwork pops off the surface.
  • The brushed silver AluDibond creates a unique metallic finish, adding a special touch.
  • The grain direction is horizontal, giving it an even more dynamic look.
  • Our aluminum icon comes in a thickness of approximately 3mm /0.12", providing a sturdy and rigid base.
  • Our direct printing technique ensures that your icon  is printed straight onto the surface of the aluminum Dibond panel, guaranteeing the highest quality reproduction.
  • White is not printed onto brushed aluminum icons. Any white in icon shines through as a unique metallic silver.
  • We've also included a hanging kit, which may vary depending on the country of fulfillment.
  • Sizes may vary slightly by region. For the US and Canada, the measurement is in inches, while for the rest of the world, it is in centimeters.
  • It is printed and shipped on demand. No minimums are required.
