The vigil lamp is an oil-burning lamp that faithful place before an icon as a reminder that Jesus Christ is the light of the world and illumines our souls. This vigil lamp is handcrafted in Greece, using a unique technique for flame-ware pots. This lamp comes in a traditional Byzantine Orthodox style. It is distinguished not only for the high-quality craftsmanship but also for artistic aesthetics.
Vigil lamps are lit using oil, it most cases, olive oil, as the fuel feeding a floating wick. The vessel holding the oil is a cup usually made of heat-treated ceramics.
It is a beautiful addition to your icon corner. The top portion of the vigil lamp features an icon of the Virgin Mary-Theotokos.
