The titles of these icons are written in five languages (Russian, English, German, French, and Japanese), which only proves the international value of the Russian art of icon painting.
This set of postcards includes some impressive examples of Russian Orthodox icon painting. Some of these icons can only be found in museums and reflect the history of the development of icon painting in the country throughout the centuries. Every period is represented here: the early stage (the 12th century) when the artists were taking lessons from the famed Byzantine masters, the era of flourishing (the 14th and 15th centuries) when independent schools of icon painting in Russia were established, and the late stage (the 16th century) dedicated to discovering theological meanings and finding the unique artistic side.
The multifaceted diversity of Russian icon painting schools is shown in the works. Thus, the Novgorod icons are notable for their brightness, and positive vibes in the colour palette, and at the same time, they convey infinite spiritual power. It’s visible in such works as The Baptism of Christ and Icon Not-Made-by-Hand of Our Lord.
As if opposing this brightness, there are the Pskov icons, which stand out because of their dark colours. Another approach to icon painting is shown by the Moscow School – the visible inner harmony and serenity as in Andrey Rublev’s famous work The Trinity. And although it’s a widely-known motif for many believers, the painting and the talent of the artist turned it into one of the most prominent works of Russian art.
Another change in Russian icon painting was influenced by the appearance of The Mother of God of Vladimir. This image was not made in Russia – its birthplace is Constantinople. Brought to Kyiv at the beginning of the 12th century, it stayed in the Holy Dormition Cathedral until 1480. It was later transferred to Moscow but regardless of its resting place, has always had immersive power over believers. And even more: the striking beauty of the Mother of God and her genuine mournful features ranks this image as one of the most perfect portraits in the world of art
THE REPLICA OF JERUSALEM ICON CONSECRATED IN A CHURCH
1 HANDMADE ICON + GIFT CASE
ICON SIZE: 13 x 18 cm (5.12 x 7.1 inches)
The Holy Family is one of the most common souvenirs that pilgrims and tourists bring from Jerusalem. Even without visiting the Holy Land, you can make a generous gift for your loved ones and order the Holy Family icon online in our store. This handmade icon can turn into a family heirloom and serve as home decor. This is the exact reproduction of Jerusalem icons, which is made with the blessing of the clergy.
This is a rare depiction that cannot be found in many churches: typically, Joseph is not portrayed with the Virgin Mary and Baby Christ in sacred images. However, it serves as a great reminder of the human origins of Our Saviour and the importance of family ties. The Holy Family is a frequent gift for a newly wedded couple, wedding anniversaries, or for the birth of the first child. It will become a great and meaningful home decor for any couple.
The image on the icon makes its meaning and purpose quite clear for all believers. The Holy Family is a symbol of strong bonds that bind a man and a woman, mutual understanding between the spouses, and their responsibility for each other and their children. The portrayal of the Holy Family is so vivid that it looks like a photo from a family album – warm and radiating love and happiness. This is the example of an ideal family, which everyone should strive for.
Believers turn to this image if there are problems in the family: frequent fights and misunderstandings between husband and wife, conflicts with children, infidelities, or loss of warmth and affection. Single people ask the sacred image to help them meet a worthy spouse. Anyone can turn to the Holy Family with requests for protecting his family and giving health to all relatives.
