Large antique Russian icon ‘Two Saints’ and Our Lady of Kazan from the 19th century or possibly earlier. Hand-painted with egg tempera paint or oil on a wooden board. On the lower left St George the dragon-slayer is probably depicted. Another saint is on the right. Unfortunately, I cannot say exactly which saint it is. Our Lady of Kazan is depicted above both saints. The painting is very detailed. The icon was kept in more reciprocal colour contrasts (see photos) with Bordeaux colours. The saints are labelled. However, the labels are barely legible. Partial restorations are present. The icon contains Levkas (deepening in the wood). The icon is in satisfactory condition with typical age-related signs of wear and tear in the form of scratches, paint flaking and bumps (see photos). At thee very top, pretty much in the middle, there is a smaller crack (see photos).
The thickness of the wooden panel is impressive (extraordinarily thick). The size of the icon is also impressive. One transverse wooden lath on the back is missing. A very decorative and eye-catching icon.
All details are clearly visible in the photos. The photos are part of the description.
Dimensions: 45.5 x 36 x 4 cm
