Description

One of the earliest extant icons of Christ known.

This icon was saved from the iconaclast controversies that destroyed so many early icons, and was preserved by the dry climate in Sinai's desert at St. Catherine's Monastery.

Worked in an ancient encaustic or wax-melting technique of making icons, it is early Byzantine (6th c.) in origin.

Approximately 8" x 10", mounted on wood. Size may vary depending on the image proportions.

Other icons styles and sizes available in store and/or by special order.
