Description
The serene face of Jesus looks upon us with compassion and love from this very beautiful icon. With His right hand raised He offers His blessings, while holding the Holy Bible. The inscription reads," I give you the new law". On the border at bottom is written, "Everything is trembling." This icon is typical of a style popular in the 18th-19th Century, used for private worship at home and placed in a part of the house known as the "red corner". Each person who entered the home was expected to pay their respects to the image by removing their hat and making the sign of the cross. Christ's character of inner strength, essential humanity and wisdom is beautifully represented by an artist whose skill and piety is abundantly demonstrated. - (PF.5204)
