Wood, gesso, gold leaf, tempera 26 x 22.5 cm Condition: in good condition, minor losses of the paint layer, candle burn on the lower margin, chips along the edges of the icon. The icon is distinguished by the subtlety of writing, elegance, decorativeness, and an abundance of gold. The best examples of the Ural icon painting, to which the present icon certainly belongs, have absorbed their best features from the Old Russian icons: from the Moscow one - elongated proportions of figures, rhythm, ornamentation, writing on gold; from Yaroslavl - a three-dimensional, rounded image of faces and the dynamism of the subject.
