Original antique icon of St. Seraphim of Sarov
This icon of St. Seraphim of Sarov was painted in the early 20th century shortly after his glorification by the Russian Orthodox Church, 1903. Both splines in the top and bottom of the panel remain and are intact, there is some curvature to the board. There has been some restoration to the face and hands where pigment was perviously missing. There is a slight crack in the top, visible in the photographs. The gold on this icon is spectacular, very vibrant. This icon was painted shortly after the glorification of one of Russia's most beloved saints.
Holy Father Seraphim, pray to God for us.
