"The art of iconography or icon-painting (originating in the ancient Byzantine religious tradition of painting) is an essential of Eastern Christian churches. Interest in this art is growing worldwide. Especially in the United States, even people outside of the Eastern Christian tradition are becoming interested and involved in painting icons. However, there are only a few authentic artists carrying out the art. This is letter is to confirm the value of Mr.Stanislav Solovyev's craftsmanship: his work is invaluable for Orthodox Christian churches and individuals practicing iconography. In America, there are very few specialists who know how to prepare the wooden boards on which icons are painted. It is a craft that requires special skills and techniques. What Mr. Solovyev does is therefore invaluable to iconographers and beneficial for the cultural life in America."
