The Crucifixion - Hand Painted  12" x 7"


The crucifix inspired by a Byzantine model shows Jesus alone on the cross in the "night" that covers the earth, when he was dying outside of the walls of Jerusalem, on the top of Calvary which means "the hill of the skull".  Tradition says that the cross was planted on top of Adam's tomb, whose skull is shown in the grotto at the bottom.  


The death of Jesus is the source of our hope: the bright colors, the stars, the worshipping angels already proclaim the victory of Love, through the Resurrection of Christ.


This hand painted icon is “written” according to the traditional technique of egg tempera with a background in gold leaves 23k on kaluga wood with raised borders and braces.


Worked in thin layers, it achieves a beautiful transparency when the final varnishing binds together all the differently colored layers in a transparent harmony which gives to the icon a depth and light expressive of its spiritual meaning.


All artwork is done in solitude and in prayer, anonymously and with love.
