Large Russian Icon - The Transfiguration of Christ

The Transfiguration is one of Christ's miracles in the Gospels, in which he is transfigured and becomes radiant upon a mountain. In Christian teachings, the Transfiguration is a pivotal moment, and the setting on the mountain is presented as the point where human nature meets God: the meeting place for the temporal and the eternal, with Jesus himself as the connecting point, acting as the bridge between heaven and earth. In Orthodox iconography, the Transfiguration is depicted in the rocky landscape. Christ is depicted in the majesty of his divine glory, which is symbolically expressed in the singular whiteness of his garments. Moses and Elijah represented on either side of Christ as concelebrants him a priest and deacon. His disciples are portrayed frightened by the transfiguration of their Master, and by the appearance of the two prophets. However, Peter has a joyful expression on his face, in accordance with his Gospel with the words: "Rabbi! good for us to be here. " Transfiguration is considered a major feast, numbered among the twelve Great Feasts in Orthodoxy and is observed on August 6 of the Julian Calendar.
