Christ Blessing (with closed Gospel) Original Egg Tempera Icon.
This icon shows Jesus in his traditional blue and red robes, blessing with His right hand and holding the Gospel with His left. He gazes calmly towards us and invites us to receive His love.
Using egg tempera and the pigments of red and yellow ochre, bone black, titanium white and azurite blue, this icon forms a pair with the icon of the Theotokos and Christ but can be purchased separately. It is a perfect size for a home icon corner or prayer room. It will require varnishing in summer 2020, once the egg tempera has cured sufficiently. Arrangements for postage can be discussed prior to purchase if required.
