Icon: Christ blessing a monk
|Name:||Icon: Christ blessing a monk||Size:||31.5 x 27.8 cm|
Christ is depicted in full length and with a Bible in his left hand. He looks sideways at a monk, who is kneeling before Him, and blesses him. This is a rare subject.
The recessed central area for the image is called a kovcheg, from the Russian word (Ковчег) which means ‘ark’. This icon has a double kovcheg.
