030-XC Christ the Pantocrator
This icon of Christ the Pantocrator was created in a workshop of St Elisabeth Convent. A high quality printed image is glued onto a wooden board and then covered with lacquer. This icon is a copy of an ancient XV century icon. Christ is portrayed with an open Gospel in his left hand. His face is small and subtle - typical of the 1430s-1440s. The silver (basma) oklad of this icon had a crown surrounded with pearls. The colors of this icon were chosen accurately and carefully: golden brown, cherry red, and turquoise are the dominant colors. This icon belongs to the school of Rublev both according to its style and the time when it was painted. It was painted by a direct disciple of St Andrei Rublev, the famous icon painter, and is in a very good condition. At present, this icon is preserved in the State Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow.
This icon of Christ the Pantocrator is available in several sizes.
