Description

Size 8 3/4"х10 3/4", 22x27 cm
Handmade according to canons of Orthodox Church, tempera painting on wood table covered with alabaster filler and golden coverage.

The icon is made of dry wood reinforced with wood bars, covered with a natural fiber cloth layer, for a higher strength and stability against the external factors. Base preparation is made by a tested recipe, based on bone glue, chalk dust and other quality ingredients.
The painting technique is called egg tempera, an ancient procedure that gives the painted layer special and artistic properties and also a greater resistance over time.
The icon was finished with professional varnish, which hold and protect the painting and do not allow yellowing over time.

Our works are performed with the usage of the ancient techniques and natural materials and components which are made by us. Therefore we ensure that through the time the icon painted by us will not distort, the colours will not fade and the surface will not crack.

If you looking for a unique birthday gift, wedding gift, special gift this hand painted orthodox icon is for you. This beautiful icon may become your beloved sacred image for your prayers as well as a perfect gift for your parents or friends for marriage, birthday or any other feast.

The Descent from the Cross or Deposition of Christ, is the scene from the Gospels' accounts of Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus taking Christ down from the cross after his crucifixion (John 19:38-42). In Byzantine art the topic became popular in the 9th century, and in the West from the 10th century. The Descent from the Cross is the 13th Station of the Cross.

The petty faults that you can find are the evidence of artisan execution.

NOTE ON ALLERGY / SKIN SENSITIVITY:
Pavlovo Posad Manufactory use only high quality natural yarn, most often being a variety of wool, that is why the shawl may have a natural feel and have the villi of the yarn, which you don’t have for synthetic products made of polyamide, etc. Although it is natural, breathing and soft, pls note that such type of wool is NOT suitable for people with wool allergy, as well as sensitive allergic skin. In case you are allergic or sensitive to certain type of wool, it is recommended to make a special order for eco-cotton and silk items”
We do best to create each shawl as similar as possible as in the item description, though each piece is unique and may slightly vary from the original - unfortunately, flat photo can not deliver the touch and the looks as good as a real product can. Pls note the shades of colors, the texture and the overall look of the product depends on your computer or smartphone settings, as well as lightening, model, etc, therefore item may slightly vary from the product photography.
