14x11cm Wood Icon Mother Of God, Immaculate Heart Lady, Madonna, Mater Dolorosa For Sale

14x11cm Wood Icon Mother Of God, Immaculate Heart Lady, Madonna, Mater Dolorosa

Immaculate Conception of Diego Velazquez. Brilliant religious work, 1618-19, current location of original is in National Gallery of London. Dimensions of the icon 13.5cm x10.5 cm or 5 1/3” x 4 1/4”
Thickness of the wooden basis 2.4 cm or 1".With its companion painting, 'Saint John on the Island of Patmos', this is one of Velazquez's earliest known works. It is also an early example of depictions in Spanish art of the Immaculate Conception, the doctrine that the Virgin Mary was herself conceived without stain of original sin (it does not refer to the conception of Jesus). She appears here as if in a vision, standing on the moon and with a crown of stars. The imagery is based on the New Testament in which the author, Saint John the Evangelist, sees a vision in the heavens of a woman who bears a child and is attacked by a dragon. In the companion painting, 'Saint John on the Island of Patmos', Velazquez depicts Saint John looking up at the woman in his my icons I use special image transfer technique which is close to decoupage. I do all the works by myself and by my hands. At first I prepare wooden basis and cover it’s surface with special chalk/glue mix, polish when it dries. Then I glue a flipped image upside down and let it dry again, wet the surface and point by point carefully remove an upper layer of the paper with my finger tips. After that I cover the icon with special varnish and special brush to achieve the similarity with the ancient original painting and stain the opposite side. Using this technology my icons and pictures look quite realistic. Surfaces of the icons are uneven, a little rough, the shabby corners and edges strengthen an impression of antique. I'm making my icons on an old or on a new wood. The old wood icons are more realistic and more old-looking. All materials are eco-friendly, certificated for domestic works and home environment.I AM ACCEPTING PERSONAL ORDERS, not necessarily religious. Making your picture will take 5-10 days. You can see more my handmade religious icons and pictures on the wood on ETSY. Find the shop "Wooden Holy Day" there.
