Well-preserved, ancient Greek icon "God mother of the sign (Znamenije)" from the 20th century. The motif is quite sought-after by collectors and connoisseurs. This icon was produced by the traditional process. Hand-painted by the traditional technique on old handmade wood. The background is gold-plated (please refer to the certificate for more details on the back). The painting is very detailed. This icon is accentuated by perfectly matched colour contrasts and accomplished shading. All saints are labelled. The inscriptions are clearly legible. The icon is in good condition with typical age-related traces of wear (see photos). The painting has age-related craquelure. In addition, there are a few places where the painting detaches a little from the wooden board (see photos).
Extremely successful and decorative icon from the past century. Reminiscent of Russian icon painting.
All details are clearly visible in the photos. The photos are part of the description.
Dimensions: 32x25.5x2.7 cm
