RARE original XVI c. Russian Orthodox bronze icon Crucifixes Baptismal CROSS with Saints

AGE : XVI century . TECHNIQUE: Made of bronze. Heavy casting.

SIZE : 40 x 58 mm


SUBJECT :

The shape of the Cross is the so called - "eight-pointed', i.e. with three horizontal beams: the upper part the "title", the second for the hands and the third as footboard. The shape of the Cross was adopted from Byzantium, while the inclination of the lower beam is a purely Russian development. In Eastern compositions Christ is nailed by four and not by three nails as in Western art. The Savior is pictured dead or alive, i.e. with eyes open or closed, depending on the different moments of the Passion. In later compositions, the Body takes a slightly curved position emphasizing, in an abstract manner, Christ's suffering as the Son of Man. The Golgotha on which the Cross is implanted, is a stylized rock, with the skull of Adam symbolizing the Redemption: Adam sinned - Christ redeemed.
