Painting on wood: egg tempera, gilded silver riza
Russian icon from the second half of the 19th century.
Title: Jesus Christ Pantocrator.
Dimensions: h 14 cm x 12 cm x 2 cm.
Technique: hand-painted - egg tempera on wood with silver riza, 84 is the Russian nomenclature of that period. Signed with the initials “I V” in Cyrillic on the riza. The halo is probably of a later period.
Never restored because it is in good condition. Only some nails are not of that period.
This icon comes from a private family collection.
This charming blessing Christ is depicted frontally and in half-length, in the typical way of the orthodox iconography. He is portrayed in a majestic and severe attitude, with the right hand raised to bless (following the orthodox tradition) and with a book on the left hand, symbol of his law.
The evangelical text symbolises the divine judgement on the world.
The fingers crossed form the anagram of Jesus (IC) Christ (XC).
Condition: in good condition, see photos.
Origin: Moscow, Russia.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped with trackable courier.
