Russian hand painted icon, Ascension 6x9cm.
In the highest part of the Mount of Olives there is the Ascension building, which reminds us of the place in which Jesus raised himself from earth and Ascended to the sky in front of the Apostles.
This icon represents the Apostles standing around Mary, who is the centre of the composition; she is a column for the Church and she is the line connecting the earth to the sky, where Jesus is Assumed among the angels.
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.
