This ancient icon of Christ Pantocrator dates back to the XIX century. The icon depicts Jesus Christ in his hieratic position, that is to say as a priest. His traits are intense and expressive. The style of this icon recalls the school of Simon Usakov, a refined and famous painter at the court of the king. Christ hold the Gospel book in his left hand while, in his right hand, he blesses the faithful according to the Orthodox/Byzantine ritual, with the open hand and joined thumb and fourth finger. The peculiar characteristic of this icon are the intense traits of Christ's face, expressing the mystery of God who became a man.
All icons of Christ Pantocrator have similar aspects: Christ's hair, his wide forehead, his marked eyebrows, the intense, thoughtful expression of his eyes and a long nose.
