Large, ancient, Greek icon "God Mother - The Life-Giving Fountain" from the past century with many rare side scenes. The motif is quite sought-after by collectors and connoisseurs. The icon was made by hand, modelled after an Byzantine example on Mount Athos.
This icon was produced by the traditional process. Painted on linen and applied to old wood with golden background (see certificate on the back of the icon). The painting is not very detailed. This icon is accentuated by perfectly matched colour contrasts and accomplished shading. The saints are labelled. Some of the labels are difficult to read. At the bottom right is the signature of the icon painter.
The icon is in good condition with typical age-related traces of wear (see photos). An above-average and eye-catching icon from the past century.
All details are clearly visible in the photos. The photos are part of the description.
Dimensions: 59 x 42.5 x 2 cm
