Antique Russian Orthodox Icon Jesus Christ Pantocrator Rare & Beautiful For Sale
Offered here is a beautiful original Russian Orthodox circa late 1800s icon depictingChrist PantocratorСпас Вседержитель (Господь Вседержитель, Пантократор)This is a less common variation of the Pantocrator icon where Christ is depicted holding a "derzhava" orb instead of a book:СПАС ВСЕДЕРЖИТЕЛЬ
Вседержитель или Пантократор (греч. - всевластный) - центральный образ в
иконографии Христа, представляющий Его как Небесного Царя и Судию.
Спаситель может изображаться в рост, сидя на троне, по пояс, или
огрудно. В левой руке свиток или Евангелие, правая обычно в
благославляющем жесте. Образ Христа Вседержителя используется в
одиночных иконах, в составе деисусных композиций, в иконостасах, стенных
росписях и т. д. Так, этот образ традиционно занимает пространство
центрального купола православного храма.
Одна из разновидностей изображения Христа Вседержителя - Спас в силах, центральная икона в традиционном русском
иконостасе. Христос восседает на троне в окружении ангельского сонма -
Встречается и редкий вариант написания этой иконы - не с книгой, а с
державой и скипетром в руках ...A superb icon, very decorative and attractive. Judging by several nail holes around edges and corners, the ikon used to have an oklad which is no longer present. It is possible that this icon was a part of an altar (the edges are cut at an angle which would make it fit into an opening in an altar door for example)...The paint is chipped and crackled around the edges. The icon was not restored or cleaned - it's in its original state. Overall Very Good antiquarian condition - see the photos below. Measures 11 1/3 by 8 1/3 inches (29cm x 21 cm).
This is an original antique icon, over 100 years old.
