St. Anne's: Holy Spirit. 2007 marks the 100th Anniversary of the construction of St. Anne's
Anglican Church, Toronto. Built in the Byzantine Greek-cross plan by Ford Howard, Architects,
it was also decorated with paintings by members of the Group of Seven, and their colleagues.
A Canadian National Historic Site, these are the only religious paintings the G7 created.

In commemoration of the 2007 Centenary, St. Anne's has commissioned Niki Kavakonis to design four Enkolpion (a Greek term for Christian imagery worn suspended from the neck), based on selected paintings in the Church. Niki Kavakonis is the daughter of Nicholas Kavakonis,
sculptor of the Winfield Gates.

The Holy Spirit figures prominently within the decorations, appearing twelve times above the four
pendentive paintings which surround the centre plan of the Church.

Sterling silver.


Available exclusively through St. Anne's Anglican Church. Profits from the sales of the Enkolpion
go to the St. Anne's Restoration Fund.
