Antique Russian Icon Holy Virgin, Jesus and John the Baptist w/Kovcheg c.1890s

Description: Antique Russian icon depicting the Holy Virgin, Jesus and John the Baptist - a popular subject in Russian iconographie.

The board is slightly curved to achieve the arched look, streightened with horizontal beams. The painted surface is carved into the board creating a so-called "kovcheg" - all these are very traditional Russian icon-making techniques that points to mid-1800s.

Painted with egg tempera - beautiful and detailed painting.

The icon measures 23 by 19 cm or 9" by 7.5". There is a small crack on the bottom of the icon with a small burned area - this usually happens from an oil lamp that is supposed to burn underneath. Otherwise excellent condition.

PLease note - this is an original icon from over 150 years old. Not a fake or copy.

Condition: see description Year: mid-1800s Country: Russia Size: 9" by 7.5" Materials: Hand-painted on wooden board
