New icon of the Prophet Daniel (150 BC)  - meaning God is my Judge.
He holds a scroll of biblical text
wears the robes of the prophet to a royal court and a head tefillin showing his Jewish faith. 
(Taken for a slave as a youth to the Persian king Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel rises in favour because of his interpretation of the king's dreams.)

beginning stages of the icon. 

Trying out the gold paint instead of gold leaf.
