Rare 17th Century Russian Orthodox Icon
This exceptional icon was created the late 1600s in Russia. Icons are considered to be gospel in paint. This one depicts four saints. It is painted with egg tempera on a wood panel, which has warped only slightly with age. Soot from burning candles and other environmental influences have left their marks on the icon. The halos are still Gold leafed. The original frame is fragmented with the hand forged nails still in place. Russian icons of the 17th century and earlier are getting harder to find and make a worthwhile investment. Measurements: 13" W x 15 1/2" H x 1 1/2" D.
