This icon of Christ the Pantocrator from St Catherine Monastery on Mt. Sinai is the earliest known iconographic image of Christ. This icon was allegedly painted in mid-6th century, during the reign of Emperor Justinian. It was the emperor's gift to the monastery, discovered as late as the nineteenth century and restored in 1962. It is worth mentioning that this icon was painted not with tempera paints but with wax paints (encaustic) in the style similar to that of the classical Roman portraits (the school of Faium). Shoulder-length icon. Printed image, wooden base, lacquer. We have a half-length variant of the same icon, too. Icon workshop of St Elisabeth Convent can make this icon of Christ the Pantocrator of Mt. Sinai in several sizes.
