Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator in gilt silver revetment cover

Christ Pantocrator is one of the most common subjects in Russian iconography, and its iconography follows a traditional pattern. In these icons, Christ is depicted as a powerful and majestic figure, with his right hand raised in blessing and his left hand holding an open book of the Gospels. The term "Pantocrator" means "Almighty" or "Ruler of All," and the image of Christ in this role conveys his power and authority as the divine judge and ruler of the world. The icon portrays Christ with a stern expression, indicating his righteous judgment and the seriousness of his message. The icon's composition features Christ is depicted half-length, holding the Gospels in his left hand and making the blessing gesture with his right. The Gospels are opened on John 13: 24 “A new command I give you: Love one another.” The icon is covered by an ornate gilt silver oklad revetment cover.

The icon is hallmarked with a town mark for the Russian town of Moscow for 1908-1917, the silversmith's mark CГ for a well-known maker Semyon Galkin.
