This sacred religious icon or shrine of Christ is an assemblage created with vintage items.

It starts with an old, ornate gold resin frame which has been embellished with vintage and new metal findings. Inside the frame is a rich, colorful icon of Christ standing in front of the cross surrounded with grapes and wheat and a crown and corona above him. The oval image is attached to a black velvet background and is encircled with a metal chain. A second metal chain encircles the oval opening of the frame itself. There is no glass over the picture.

This frame-type icon or shrine is designed to either hang on a wall or stand on a flat surface like a table, desk or shelf and creates a sacred spot to pray, meditate or to bring one's thoughts back to spiritual things. It is portable, so you could bring it with you on a business trip or vacation.

It measures 9" tall, 7 1/4" wide and 1" deep.

The frame is in good condition and the metal embellishments include a brass drawer pull, a metal hand, a cross, two metal chains and mini gold microbeads. The iconic picture is not hand painted, but is a color illustration in good condition taken from a damaged vintage prayer book.

This would be a treasure of a gift for a man or woman or would be a way to create a spiritual area for your own prayers.
