Antique Russian 18th-19th century Brass & Enamel Quadriptych Traveling Icon
This antique bronze four panel folding icon, or quadtych, depicts events in the life of Christ. Icons, such as these with their visual images, rich in symbolism, kept alive the various religious holidays, celebrations, beliefs and spirit of the Russian Orthodox Church. They often were displayed as home altars.
Russian altars and other icons were handled daily and rubbed during devotional prayers causing noticeable wear and smoothing of details. These pre Soviet icons were made illegal during the reign of the Soviet Union. This icon was cast in solid bronze, and decorated with hot baked enamel in 2 colors, blue and white.
