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.
1 CONSECRATED ICON OF SAINT SPYRIDON + GIFT BOX
ICON SIZE: 13 x 18 cm (5.12 x 7.1 inches)
Saint Spyridon, Bishop of Trimythous, is among the most revered saints in Orthodoxy. He is known far beyond his homeland Greece and helps with everyday issues. Most often, believers turn to the merciful bishop when experiencing hardships with finding a job or problems with money and housing. The silver-plated icon of St Spyridon will become a valuable piece of home decor and spiritual support for any Christian.
During his earthly life, Spyridon was loved and respected for his humble nature, help, and generosity. For these virtues, the Lord granted him the gift of miracle-working. According to legends, he managed to heal a child when there was no hope for recovery and cast out evil spirits from sinful people. In a moment of spiritual crisis, it’s good to turn to the saint with sincere prayer.
Saint Spyridon is considered one of the most benevolent saints: for many centuries, believers have been turning to him with their requests for healing and prosperity, and he hasn’t rejected a single heartfelt prayer. When seeking the help of the Bishop of Trimythous, you don’t have to learn the exact words of prayer by heart. Simple words and firm belief in a good result work better than thousands of phrases.
When you buy a consecrated icon of St Spyridon, you get more than just a piece of home decor. You also receive the blessing and the protection of the saint. There’s almost nothing that the saint cannot help with: finding and purchasing the right house, healing, getting a new job, success in commerce, or spiritual strength and prosperity.
