17th-20th Century Religious Icons

Jasper52

badge TOP RATED
Arising from the European Orthodox world are icons that carry a rich history and intricate religious symbolism. Depicting Gospel scenes, these ornate paintings on wooden canvases and brass sand-castings remain faithful to the stories of Virgin Mary and Christ. Yet unusual subjects, such as a rendering of four saints or the Virgin of Three Hands, hint that a few rare pieces were specially commissioned by families. Through this one-of-a-kind sale, discover and decode traditions that remain central to the European Orthodox tradition.
