New Arrival
18-century Fine Russian Icon - The Adoration of the Magi in silver basma frame

The icon is depicting the Adoration of the Magi (also known as Adoration of the Kings). The three Magi, represented as kings, having found Jesus by following a star, lay before him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, and worship him. It is related in the Bible by Matthew 2:11: "On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother; and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own country by another path". The Eastern Orthodox Church commemorates the Adoration of the Magi on the Feast of the Nativity (December 25).
