Russian hand painted icon, Harrowing of Hell 6x9cm.
Christ is holding the chirograph; the list of the Dead, "the written document of our condemnation".
Earth opens in a chasm, and this black cavity resembles that of the cradle in which Jesus was put during the Nativity scene.
This small icon is very refined, hand made by the painters of the Russian school of Palekh.
Everything is perfect even in the smallest details.
Hand-painted on wood with egg tempera and gold leaf, following the antique iconographic techniques of the Russian Church.
The images are painted on canvas then transferred on wood.
Delivered with certificate of origin.
