Original antique icon of Christ the Savior
This icon of the Savior was painted in the 18th century, dated 1750-1800. The splines are no longer in place, as is common with early icon panels. Minor restoration to small sections of paint loss and the background was removed with the "under ivory" technique. Icon has been revarnished. When originally made there was most likely a metal basma and halo applied, but they are no longer with the icon.
This is a beautiful and stunning icon in a large size. It would be a very nice addition to either home or parish.
