SHROUD A (Gr.epitaphios) used at the services of Great and Holy Friday, features a beautifully hand embroidered Lamentation Scene, mounted on the finest wine coloured velvet, which is handsomely adorned with an intricate and heavily worked gold thread ornament and rich gold lettering. The four Evangelists are nestled in roundels at the four corners of the shroud. The perimeter is trimmed with gold bullion fringes and is lined with burgundy taffeta.
For those who wish to encase the shroud in a glass frame when it is not in use, it is important to make sure that the shroud is properly attached so as to mitigate any possibility of sagging. At your request, we will affix a special hanging solution to the back of the shroud for you.
Or, it can be made to your specifications. The troparia can be embroidered in Greek, English, Church Slavonic, Serbian or any other language or script. The Lamentation Scene can be embroidered in colour as in the photographs, or in gold and silver threads with coloured highlights.
