Icon "Christ Pantocrator", framed
The icons of the Orthodox Church are not simply "images", the consecrated objects enable, according to Orthodox belief, a connection between this world and the hereafter, between the earthly and spiritual worlds. Quite a few are even attributed miraculous powers. They obey a strict canon of images, which the creative, often anonymous saint-writer ("hagiographer") varies only very cautiously. The great sacral significance of the icon corresponds to its design: the artist usually decorates them elaborately with gold leaf.
A special printing process is necessary for the convincing reproduction of such a masterpiece. Only in this way is it possible to authentically transfer the intensity of the colours onto the picture canvas. The background of the picture (the "divine light") is achieved by a shiny metal alloy. On the back of the reproduction is a certificate explaining the motif and reproduction technique of the icon.
The Anointed One as Ruler of the World. The upright posture, the gospel altar and the right hand raised in blessing are typical of the depiction of Jesus. The nimbus is set with crystals. Size 35 x 43 cm.
