In-Stock Notification
Antique Russian Religious Icon of St Veronica, holding the veil with the image of Christ.Hand painted devotional image on a thick plank of wood depicting the Saint Veronica holding the veil. An icon in general is a painting of a saint, a holy picture of the Eastern Orthodox Church. The art of icon painting originates from the early Christian and Byzantine tradition. In an Orthodox church, icons are placed on a special wall and at home, they have a corner of their own. Since the purpose of the icons is to convey a religious message, only trained Orthodox painters are allowed to produce them. Strict rules govern every aspect of icon painting: the way colours are to be mixed, how the saints should be depicted, even the range of colours used.
