Fantastic icon of great size. Its subject is very rare!!
Isaac's Sacrifice is an episode from the biblical book of Genesis. His story can be found in Genesis 22,1-18
God, in order to test Abraham's faith, orders him to sacrifice his son Ishmael, Abraham went without hesitation to Mount Moriah. As Abraham is about to diligently make the sacrifice, already wielding the knife, an angel of the Lord comes down to block him and shows him a ram to be immolated as a substitute sacrifice.
The scene, interpreted as a foreshadowing of Christ's sacrifice, is one of the highlights of the Pentateuch.
I think it's the first time that out of over 20.000 icons in Catawiki auctions you see a Russian icon with this subject!
The pictures are an integral part of the description.
