Description

Engraved Serigraph with Jesus Christ Pantocrator

An excellent serigraph with the representation of Jesus Christ Pantocrator, one of the most common religious images of Orthodox Christianity. The icon depicts Christ with a somewhat melancholy, with the right hand raised in blessing while holding a gospel with his left one. Pantocrator usually translated as «almighty» or «all-powerful». The icon of Christ Pantocrator appears in the dome of most Orthodox Churches. According to Orthodox tradition the highest point of the Church is reserved for Jesus Christ. His Mother and all the other saints, angels and prophets are depicted on the walls immediately below Pantocrator. The iconographic type of Christ Pantocrator, the «all-powerful», is very frequent in later Byzantine art.

Engraved Serigraph: Characteristics

A beautiful engraved serigraph on natural wood. The iconographer uses shiny background in gold colour highlighting the forms and the characteristics of the saints and giving visually a polished type effect. Engraved icons incorporates a special technique something that gives the icon an excellent aesthetic style.

Serigraph is a common technique in iconography and as a result is being taught and used in many iconography workshops including the ones at Mount Athos. At iconographies that are made with this particular technique monks are using modern and traditional methods, which means that the iconographer creates a part of the icon by hand and with less participation of technology. This icon is crafted with excellent materials on natural wood so it remains intact and with bright colours.
