Ancient Greek icon “Resurrection of Christ” from the 18th/19th century. Hand-painted with egg tempera colours on a wooden panel with chalk background. The painting is very detailed. Perfectly matched colour contrasts and accomplished shading. Very eye-catching bright, warm colours with many golden tones. The painting has craquelure (see photos). The icon has inscriptions. The inscriptions ar partly difficult to read. The icon is in good condition with typical age-related traces of wear in the form of scratches, paint flaking, bumps (see photos). The has has probably been repainted at a later point.
Relatively rare and sought-after motif. Heavy and solid wooden panel.
All details are clearly visible in the photos. The photos are part of the description.
