Many engraved prints can be found at Sinai. These are particularly important, as the engraved copperplates from which they were made have often been preserved in the Sinai treasury. These date from between the fifteenth and the nineteenth centuries. Also noteworthy are the various engravings of icons or of the Sinai area that were executed elsewhere and then brought to Sinai. Some of these used Sinai icons as their models, or the artist attempted to show all of the sacred sites in the vicinity of the monastery. These engravings followed the prevailing trends of their time, and in them it is possible to trace both the influence of Orthodox iconography and the traits of Western European art.
