Description

This original icon is hand painted in egg tempera with jewel colours including semi-precious mineral pigments of malachite and lapis lazuli. It has been gilded with 24carat gold and painted in the traditional icon style on hand-gessoed seasoned hardwood.

This is a small icon, 20cm tall by 14.5cm wide by 2.5cm deep. It has been varnished and is ready to hang.

The image is based on the Romanesqe 12th century St Alban's Psalter. The illumination depicts the awe of the women, referred to as the 'Three Maries' in the manuscript, who find the empty tomb of Christ on the first Easter morning. The icon depicts the angel communicating the profound message of Good News to the three women, whilst only one of the sleeping soldiers is awake to witness the angel seated above him, by the empty tomb.
