Wooden Icon of the Nativity of Jesus Christ

In the center of the composition, the Mother of God is represented on a bed of cinnabar. Behind her, in a dark cave, there is a manger with a Baby and an ox and a donkey bending towards Him. It is generally accepted that the ox and donkey in paintings depicting Christmas symbolize pagans and Jews. Near the cave there are angels and shepherds worshiping the Child. In the upper left corner of the icon there are three magicians galloping on horses. Joseph, reflecting on the miraculous birth of the Savior, and the old shepherd standing in front of him are depicted below on the left. To their right, two maids are preparing to bathe the Child.

The icon “Nativity of Jesus Christ” follows the iconography that was formed in Moscow art of the early 15th century on the basis of Byzantine models. Its distinctive feature is the double image of angels - they not only preach the gospel to the shepherds, but also worship the Savior who came into the world.

 

The icon is made by printing on a wooden board. Paints are mineral, do not fade with time. The thickness of the board is 2 cm. The board is covered with soil by hand. The image is covered with wax. Each icon has a metal mount on the back side so that you can hang the icon on the wall.

Our icons are made by Orthodox craftsmen. You can read more about the technology here: https://iconsofsaints.com/pages/how-is-the-icon-made
