Icon of Christ (Philanthropos) of Sinai

Icon of Christ (Philanthropos) of Sinai

This is a sneak preview: I hope to blog this icon from beginning to end this week, now that it is completed and about to go to its new home. Here is a link to the article that explains the technical side of things & why it is called ‘Philanthropos’ (Lover of Mankind) not ‘Pantocrator’.
Lord have mercy.
