Description

Antique handmade icon with Jesus Christ the Bridegroom

A beautiful antique handmade icon with the representation of Jesus Christ the Bridegroom. Our Lord is the Bridegroom of the Church and of every human soul. It took the form of human and came to the world from its immense love to people. To save us from death and give us the Paradise again. Jesus was humiliated and led to the martyrdom of the Cross to lift human. Christ Himself likened His coming with marriage, and Himself with a Bridegroom. The significance of this likeness is that a «sacred marriage» of God and humanity takes place in the face of Christ. On the head he has the crown of thorns worn by the soldiers who wanted to humilliate him. The parable of Jesus is caused by the physical but also the mental pain that he is experiencing. He carries the sin of all the world on his shoulders. He is led to martyrdom and the cross to give salvation to mankind.

This is an exact copy of Byzantine art that has been crafted with excellent quality materials in natural wood.
