Carved Russian icon, Foot Washing 26x31, hand painted.
This icon has a very important meaning, it represents the scene of the Foot Washing as narrated in the Gospel of John.
It represents the humility of Our Lord; knowing he would have had to leave this world after the Last Supper, he washes the feet of each of his disciples: even though he was the master, he proved himself more humble than them.
This is the symbol of the love of God for men, a gesture that sums up the whole life of purification Our Lord towards mankind.
This icon is hand painted in Russia (Yaroslavl) following the iconographic tradition and the severe rules of the Orthodox Russian Church.
The small imperfections you might find are therefore the proof that the article has been entirely hand made.
