Christ Pantocrater - CK.0328
Price: $9600.00
This icon is a representation of Christ Pantocrator, the awesome ruler of the universe. He holds a book inscribed in Cyrillic text, probably the Bible, in his left hand, a testament to his redemption. With his right hand, he makes a sign of benediction, blessing us. A large golden halo surrounds his head, evidence of his divinity. Stylistically, much of the painting is derived from earlier Byzantine mosaics and paintings, typical of Orthodox art. This influence can be seen in the linear, angular folds of his drapery and the relative spatial isolation of the image without any elaboration of environment or setting. Most impressive is the intricate, stylized representation of the folds of his garments, directly derived from the Byzantine style. Precious gemstones have been woven into the cuffs and collar of his robe, revealing his majesty. - (CK.0328)Christ Pantocrater - CK.0328Origin: Russia Circa: 18 th Century ADto19th Century ADCollection: Russian Icons Style: Russian Orthodox Medium: Oil n Wood Panel
