Description
As if from an illuminated manuscript cast in bronze, this fine icon shows Christ giving His blessings, His right hand raised in benediction as he holds the Holy Book. The inscription on either side of Him reads, "Lord Jesus Christ, the Pantocrator." Very detailed and lush vines surround the outer border, which makes not only a lovely decorative element, but also serves to remind us of the wine of the Eucharist. Twisting vines around Christ himself appear as if He is emerging from the 'tangle' of the world into the light of God. For the pious, such icons as this handsome example have long been an indispensable part of daily worship. - (PF.5240)
