c.1700 Monumental Triptych-Kuzov with an Icon of the Mother of God & Selected Feasts

A monumental triptych-kuzov centered with an icon of the Passion of the Mother of God and selected Orthodox feasts, Moscow, circa 1670- 1700. The ogee-shaped surmount contains an image of the Trinity with cherubim, seraphim, the Deisis, and symbols of the Evangelists and is held in place with a stepped gilt or painted wood frame. The flanking doors are set with a split scene of the Annunciation in the uppermost, half-ogee form registers. The left door is further set with an icon of the Anastasis above the Nativity of Christ; the right with the Transfiguration above the Dormition of the Mother of God. The icons on the doors are mounted with framing strips of gilded silver on which are engraved the title of each scene or scrolling floral ornament. The borders of these strips are chased in a pattern of beaded borders. The carved wood case is bound in leather with iron mounts. The exterior corners set with pierced mounts with sheets of mica over gold silk brocade, most likely Italian.
