Russian icon, hand-painted Foot Washing miniature measuring 6x9cm.

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 small icon is very refined, hand made by the painters of the Russian school of Palekh.
Everything is perfect even in the smallest details.
