18th Century Orthodox Cross Travel Icon, Enameled Brass, Russia, Mint Condition


Enamel on brass, Russia

18th Century

This exquisite and popular travel icon shows great detail in the iconography made following the strict cannons of Russian Sacred art.

Represented here is the typical Russian Orthodox Cross with three horizontal crossbeams and the lowest one slanted to remind that "The Cross is a Scale of Justice". On the lowest slanted crossbeam is depicted the Jerusalem old city. Christ the Savior is represented on the upper part of the cross surrounded by iconography like the sun and moon of the Old Testament, Veronica’s face with bowing angels above and the skull of Adam in the Grotto bellow.

At the back, we can see intricate geometrical motifs filling the space.

The exquisite quality of this artwork and the outstanding condition of the enamel makes this piece truly stand above the rest.
