Somewhat improbably, Auckland’s North Shore is home to a small studio keeping alive the ancient tradition of icons, or sacred art. Michael Pervan is the director of the Studio of St John the Baptist. He and manager Jenny Trolove have committed their skills - and their faith - to producing what they call “images of the unseen God in the icon of Christ”. And as Michael tells producer Justin Gregory, they do this in a most appropriate location.
