This master piece features the most essential motive of Russian Orthodox Iconography – Virgin Mary and her child.
The wood burnt egg is handcrafted by implementing the technique of wood burning, when the image is not painted but burnt into the surface of the wood in various shapes and intensities. This art form perfectly suits to achieve a great range of natural tones and shades while preserving the original character and vision of the image.
The icon of the Blessed Virgin (Virgin Mary of Suzdal Icon) holding baby Jesus reproduced in this wood burnt egg draws the viewer's attention with its striking intensity and spirituality of look. The gold leaf halos along with the image frame and the cross on the back of the wood burnt egg crafted with the same material refine the overall sepia-toned color palette, while emphasizing the holy radiance of the glorioles.
Strictly limited in his creative technique by the canons of Russian Orthodox Icon painting, the artist nevertheless managed to add some unique features to the general composition, the posture, and the traits thus making this wood burnt egg an exclusive piece of artistry, a one-of-a-kind item featured by Russian Treasure.
A fine piece of authentic Russian artwork this wood burnt egg featuring Virgin Mary of Suzdal Icon will be an excellent gift for Christmas, Easter or any other religious occasion.
