Christian conscience sees in saints the examples for God’s power revealed to man.
The icon of the saint does not simply depict a moment in his life, but summarises his experience of asceticism and faith, the characteristics of its historical journey of Holiness.
Every Saint is portrayed with the essential features characterising him, which modelled his vocation. The human figure is transformed and depicted so as every detail expresses the concept of Transfiguration: face becomes the focal element; this is why it is never covered by a "riza" (an embossed cover, often made of precious material, which reached its peak in the 19th century, thanks to the influence of Fabergé, undisputed world master, who created jewelry production centers in Saint Petersburg, Moscow and Odessa).
The icon in question is a good example of that.
Origin: Russia 1890 (see punch).
Size: height 8.7 cm - width 7 cm - thickness 0.7 cm,
material: wood (icon) and silver (riza).
