This exquisite 19th-Century Russian icon depicts Christ as Pantocrator (‘ruler of all’). Christ is portrayed as a half-length figure who looks out at the viewer in a direct, thoughtful way. With his right hand, he blesses the beholder and in his left he holds the Gospels.

Christ’s face and hands have been finely painted in a traditional, Byzantine-esque style. This stylised, static depiction of Christ helps to convey his divine power. Christ’s halo is crafted from silvered foil and his robe and the Gospels from embossed gilt foil. The figure is flanked by two Russian inscriptions and contained within a gilt metal inner border. Beyond this, there is a main border which is covered in silvered foil and painted sculptural paper flowers. The icon is displayed within a glazed wooden frame.
