Description
Jesus' crucifixion forms the main motif of this elaborate and highly detailed icon. The cross is placed in the lower middle portion of the central panel done in gilt relief. Two figures stand either side of Him on the mount of Golgotha, including the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalen. Scenes from Christ's life, from the Nativity to the Ascension, are depicted in small separate panels set against blue and white enamel. On the upper left and right corners we see the Virgin and Jesus in poignant circumstances, at the beginning of His life and following the Resurrection. Below them are four richly dressed saints holding the Holy Book while looking towards the crucified Christ. The skillful use of various mediums creates different levels of perspective, which beautifully accentuates the emotional content of each scene. - (PF.5328)
