Artistic Wood Carving Studio

St. George Orthodox Church, Indianapolis, IN

Here is an image from blueprints from another iconostasis project at St. George Orthodox Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. This project will be carved in the Criticoeptanisiaco style. There are only five Churches in the world, known to be carved in this style. This will be the second Church in the United States carved in this style, and both projects will have been carved by Konstantinos Papadakis.

Pallouriotissa, Nicosia, Cyprus

The Church in Pallouriotissa, Cyprus holds a special place in the heart of Konstantinos Papadakis. As a young wood carver in the 1960's, under the tutelage of the master of masters, Theophanis Nomicos, he was honored to have some of his work selected to be included in the iconostasis of this beautiful church.

At the time, photographs of his work were forbidden by his master. The photographs shown here were taken recently by a friend traveling in Cyprus, and were given to Konstantinos. While these photographs show the work of several carvers, the royal doors, columns and several panels are the work of Konstantinos Papadakis.

St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church

In September of 2009, Konstantinos traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina to install a new iconostasis, and present it to the parish of St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox Church.

Two years in the making, this vast creation was done in the Cretan Eptanisiako rhythm, and allowed Konstantinos to fulfill both a spiritual and a professional dream.

In November, 2009 the parish of St. Nektarios Greek Orthodox church published a Letter to St. Nektarios Parishioners in their monthly bulletin.
