SOLD: Yaroslavl Theotokos and Christ – original hand painted icon

£250.00

A miniature icon – 10x15cm (4×6 inches) on solid wood, oil gilded and depicting the tender love between Mary, the Mother of God and her Child, Jesus Christ. They embrace tenderly, as many parents do, while Mary’s expression reflects the knowledge in her heart that this Child is not like others around Him. The photograph is a little dark but the pigments used are natural, so not garish, and the details are highlighted with 23 carat shell gold. This icon requires varnishing in future, ideally after one year, and I am happy to offer this service as well as postage in a velvet lined silk bag, so that it is perfect for persentation as a special gift to a loved one or on a memorable occasion. Care instructions come with the icon which is sent by recorded insured delivery.
