Russia, ca. 19th century CE. A very fine brass traveling icon in a single panel with four scenes in the life of Christ. The religious scenes are enriched by blue and white enamel details. The back of the panel is covered in very fine vertical striations, almost like burnishing on a piece of pottery. Three suspension holes are shown on the right side of the icon, suggesting that this was once part of a larger triptych icon. A lovely and richly-colored example of Russian religious artwork! Size: 3.8" W x 6.2" H (9.7 cm x 15.7 cm).
