047-XC The Crucifixion of the Lord
Starting at $3.00
This lacquered icon of the Crucifixion of the Lord was created in the lacquered icons workshop of St Elisabeth Convent. A high-quality image printed on paper is glued to a wooden board and covered with a layer of lacquer for extra protection.
This is an accurate copy of the eponymous icon by Vassily Vereshchagin (painted in 1875-1880), one of six works he painted for the Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow. His huge 5m-high paintings Praying for the Cup, Behold the Man, Carrying the Cross, The Crucifixion by the Romans, The Descent from the Cross, and The Descent into the Grave deal with the passions and the death of the Savior. These paintings miraculously survived to the present day and were put into the sanctuary of the restored church again after complex restoration.
This icon has several sizes to choose from.
