Description

Hagiography with Gold depicting Jesus Christ the Life Giver

This icon has been painted entirely by hand and on pine wood by the talented icon painter Father Pefkis, former student of the Athonite Ecclesiastical Academy at Mount Athos.

The handmade processing of the hagiographic surface and the aging that it has undergone, as well as the 22K gold background in combination with the vivid colors of the hagiography make this work unique. Additional detail with a unique value is the polished halo which is adorned with 23,75 carat gold leaf.

A unique hagiography that is handmade by the famous Greek hagiographer, Father Pefkis!

According to the Byzantine art, Jesus Christ the Life Giver is depicted strict, gentle and peaceful. He is wearing his tunic underneath while being wrapped with a pleated garment. The forehead of Christ is hegemonic, full of wisdom and strength, while His figure is dripping in the reverent soul all the Holy feelings.
