Russian icon, Deposition of the Cross 22x27cm.
This is the event occurring on Good Friday.
The icon represents the theme of the Lamentation. The Virgin is kissing her son's face; John is leaning on the body, Joseph of Arimathea is praying by his feet and Nicodemus is overwhelmed by the pain.
This icon is hand painted in Russia following the iconographic tradition and the severe rules of the Russian Orthodox Church.
The small imperfections you might find are therefore the proof that the article has been entirely hand made.
Delivered in an elegant blue box with satin lining and certificate of origin.
