The image of Christ Pantocrator was one of the first images of Christ developed in the Early Christian Church and remains a central icon of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Christ holds the New Testament in his left hand and makes the gesture of teaching or of blessing with his right. The most common translation of Pantocrator from greek is "Almighty" or "All-powerful".

THE TECHNIQUE:
I painted this piece on a wood panel after applying a stucco canvas. I used tempera paint (or gouache) for the figure and gold leaf for the halo and the background. The surface of the icon is varnished with couple of layers to assure a long lasting image and to make it easy and safe to clean it from dust. The back and the sides are stained in darker color.
The icon measurements are: 14 inches long (35.5cm), 10 inches wide(25.5cm), 1" thick.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to commission a specific icon that you don't see in my shop.
