Orthodox Icons of Igor

Name icons are especially meaningful for people whose names coincide with the names of Saints. An Igor icon can be given as a gift both on a name day, birthday, and other spiritual and life events, such as the consecration of a dwelling or a wedding. It can also be purchased for personal worship and prayer.

Often on an icon with Igor you can see the image of a horse, symbolizing his military strength and courage.
