Price: $1500.00
This intriguing icon represents the "Feast Days and the Exaltation of the Mother of God." The upper portion shows 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 in 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 beauty of this icon derives from the extremely detailed figuration and ornamentation, set against a lovely blue background, combining artistry with piety in a context that is eternal. - (PF.5237)Section of a Brass Traveling Icon - PF.5237Origin: Russia Circa: 1750 AD to 1900 ADDimensions: 6.75" (17.1cm) high x 4.25" (10.8cm) wide Collection: Russian Icons Style: Russian Orthodox Medium: Enameled Brass
