Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator in brass oklad cover & kiot frame

Christ Pantocrator refers to a specific depiction of Christ. The most common translation of Pantocrator is "Almighty" or "All-powerful". In this understanding, Pantocrator is a compound word formed from the Greek words for "all" and the noun "strength" (κρατος). This is often understood in terms of potential power; i.e., ability to do anything, omnipotence. The iconic image of Christ Pantocrator was one of the first images of Christ developed in the Early Christian Church and remains a central icon of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In the half-length image, Christ holds the Gospels in his left hand and makes the gesture of blessing with his right.

The Gospels are opened on Matthew 11:28 “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

The silver revetment cover is hallmarked with a maker's mark of a prolific Moscow's silversmith Semyon Galkin and dated 1894.
