About the artwork

021 Icon: Russian icon depicting an extended Deesis. This extended Deesis is a very rare icon indeed. Normally a Deesis is painted for an iconostasis and each saint is painted on a separate panel. Because this Deesis icon is painted for the iconostasis of a very small chapel all the saints are painted on one panel. In the center we see Christ Pantokrator on a Byzantine throne. Behind the throne the Archangels Michael en Gabriel are visible. Left of the throne we see the Mother of God. First half of the 17th century. 80 x 34 cm.
