Christ Pantocrator - PF.5684
Price: $4800.00
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. Christ looks out at us from heaven, symbolized by the formerly golden background. Unfortunately, the varnish used to seal and protect the paint has darkened over time, subduing the vibrancy of much of the work, including the background. However, the glory of this icon has not faded or darkened at all, it is as clear and luminous as it ever was. - (PF.5684)Christ Pantocrator - PF.5684Origin:Russia Circa:19th Century ADDimensions:10.625" (27.0cm) high Collection: Russian Icons Style: Russian Orthodox Medium: Oil on Wood Panel
