An icon of the Annunciation, based on a 14th century mosaic thought to be from Constantinople, now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
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 Annunciation 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. It includes pure silver and acrylic jewel highlights.
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").
