Miracle of the Loaves

Miracle of the Loaves


An image based on a catacomb painting of the miracle of the loaves. As with many early images Christ is shown in contemporary Roman dress. In this image he is also holding what seems to be a magic wand.

This icon is part of the New Testament series, which derives from a range of sources, including manuscripts, other icons and mosaics. It contains images from the life of Christ as well as apostles and angels. Some icons include 24 carat gold highlights.

The Miracle of the Loaves is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished. 

This is one of a series of New Testament icons; see my shop for other images.

The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
