Russian Icon - Christ Pantocrator in brass oklad and kiot shadow frame

Ca. 1900 Russian Icon depicting Christ Pantocrator in brass oklad revetment cover and glass-fronted wooden kiot shadow frame. 

Christ Pantocrator refers to a specific depiction of Christ. The most common translation of Pantocrator is "Almighty" or "All-powerful". In this understanding, Pantokrator 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 New Testament in his left hand and makes the gesture of  teaching or of blessing with his right.
