Russian Tempera Painted Icon: Tikhvin Mother Of God For Sale

Russian Tempera Painted Icon: Tikhvin Mother Of God

Mother of God of Tikhvin is the variant of Mother of God Hodigitria (Showing the way). In the fifth century, this icon was transferred from Jerusalem to Constantinople and in the year 1383 it disappeared, and appeared near the small Northern town of Tikhvin at Lake Ladoga within the boundaries of Novgorod the Great.

After the Bolshevik’s revolution the holy image of the Tikhvin Mother of God was located in Chicago. This Holy Icon was returned to Tikhvin from USA in 2004 on its feast day that was on 26 June (9 July).

The icon was painted on a very old (at least 19 c.) wooden board with the shrine i.e. the rectangular hollow at the middle part designed for the image. The margins are above the hollow. The shrines mostly belong to the antique icons from the 18 century and earlier. The board was covered with levkas (gesso, special priming) and painted with egg tempera and gold paints that use the small parts of leaf gold. The margins were hand engraved previously. The style is traditional and strictly follows antique canons of the icon painting.

This Russian Orthodox icon was painted by a modern professional church artist at the Russian town Yaroslavl (not far from Moscow) that is one of the main and old centers of the Russian icon painting.

There were two original wooden wedges at the back to prevent the board from wrapping. Both are lacking now.

Size = 13x9.8x0.9 (33x25x2.3 cm). Weight = 803 gr.
