Icon: Christ Pantokrator
|Name:||Icon: Christ Pantokrator||Size:||36 x 31 cm|
Here Christ is shown holding a book of Gospels and delivering a blessing. The abbreviated shoulder height inscription identifies him as Господь Вседержитель
Greek letters in the halo: O ΩN (‘the Being or ‘He who is’), based on ‘I am that I am’ from Exodus 3:13-14; Greek letters on the side: IC XC = Jesus Christ.
Christ gives a blessing with his right hand and holds a half-opened, beautifully-decorated book of Gospels in his left hand. His red chiton and blue himation have subtle golden highlights.
