Price: $900.00
This fascinating panel is one of three others comprising a four-part icon designed for "Feast Days and the Exaltation of the Mother of God." This theme occupies the upper portion, showing the Virgin Mary at the center, surrounded by adoring saints and watched over by God the Father. The scene on the upper left depicts the 'Mother of God of Tikhvin' with Alexander Svirsky, Cyril Belozersky and four bishops. Next is the 'Mother of God of Vladimir' with the 'Holy Fools' Maxime and Basil and four saintly Metropolitans of Moscow--Peter, Jonah, Alexei and Philip. The panel below depicts the 'Mother of God of the sign of Novgorod' with Antony Rimlyanin, Archbishop Leonty and other saints. The last panel shows the 'Mother of God of Smolensk' with Anthony and Theodosius of the Monastery of the Caves of Kiev. In each section the figures are grouped in such a way as to allow for an area of landscape below the portrait of the Madonna. The lovely pale blue background is identified with the Virgin Mary, and also serves to make the figures seem more vivid and dramatic. - (PF.5235)Section of an Enameled Brass Traveling Icon - PF.5235Origin: Russia Circa: 1750 AD to 1900 ADDimensions: 6.25" (15.9cm) high x 4" (10.2cm) wide Collection: Russian Icons Style: Russian Orthodox Medium: Enameled Brass
