Very large Greek icon in bright red tones.
Mark the evangelist with a book and winged St Mark lion.
Tempera/casein on wood, halo in real 24 carat gold.
Remnants of an old infestation visible in wear along the edges. (Treated)
This icon was part of an ancient Orthodox Greek church’s fittings for the congregation and comes from a private collection of an icon restorer - the size and quality speaks for its display in an Orthodox parish in the iconostasis
The condition is very good - there is no visible retouching or major damage or cracking - back 2 sponki have been replaced - rare beautiful icon, I guarantee the age, from the 18th century/beginning of the 19th century.
