Lot 0004 Details

Description
A LARGE AND ATTRACTIVE RUSSIAN ICON OF THE THEOPHANY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, CIRCA 1600. This icon depicts the baptism of Christ in the Jordan River by John the Forerunner (Baptist). At top center within stylized clouds representing the heavens is depicted God the Father delivering His blessing, looking down upon His beloved Son, of whom He is well pleased (Matthew 3:13-17). His head is encircled by a halo with an eight-pointed glory (slava) signifying the Day of Eternity. Beneath him Christ stands in the Jordan and on the left John baptizes him with water. On the left bank of the river are three angels of the Lord whose hands are covered with cloth as a sign of veneration. Likely from the festival tier of an iconostasis in a small chapel or church. 20.25 inches x 16.25 inches (51.5 x 41 cm).
