Christ the Lord Almighty (bust) Handpainted Icon 9x12 Inches
Christ the Lord Almighty (bust). 9x12 inches. Pigment with acrylic glaze for the base skin and background, acrylic gouache for the rest of the icon, with 23k gold. Watermarks do not appear on the actual icon itself.
This icon is a shoulder length variant of the "Lord Almighty". The icon is distinquished by his grim expression, thus the popular title "The Christ of the Fierce Eye." Christ is not shown as a comforting Lord in this icon, but rather as the fierce judge of the world, calling all in to account for their sins-rewarding the righteous but severly chastising the wicked.
