From among the hundreds of holy icons in the monastery`s possession, 152 were carefully selected for this edition. Historically, they span from the late 14th to the early 19th century and include masterpieces that are inaccessible to most of the monastery`s pilgrims. Quite significantly, the Karakallou monastery`s holdings feature the largest collection of works by Dionyssios of Fourna, a prominent byzantine iconographer of the 18th century.
