Many more icons can be found at www.russianlocator.com
With over 20 years experience in handling, & supplying icons to many major galleries throughout the world
you can be sure that the description given is as accurate as possible of an authentic icon & fully guaranteed as such.
I have noticed many fakes appearing not only on but even in sale houses & being passed as genuine antique icons. In particular silver icons with the date 1890 & makers mark AC. 99% of these are fake.
The other icons to watch out for are 'baked' to create false crquelure 'cracking' of the paints surface. The effect is a very uniform & regular pattern not obtained on a genuine aged icon. New paintings on old boards are also very much in existance. I will be happy to give an opinion on any icon.
Description of the icon subject
Christ giving the blessing whilst holding a globe representing the world
Symbolism of the Blessing
The fingers spell out “IC XC”, a widely used four letter abbreviation of the Greek for Jesus (IHCOYC) Christ (XPICTOC). It is by the name of Jesus that we are saved and receive blessings: “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” (Phil 2:10).
The three fingers of Christ – as well as spelling out “I” and “X” – confess the Tri-unity of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The touching finger and thumb of Jesus not only spell out “C”, but attest to the Incarnation: to the joining of divine and human natures found in the body of Jesus Christ.
