Abba Moses or Moses the Black (330–405) was an ascetic monk and priest in Egypt in the fourth century AD, and a notable Desert Father.
This is part of the series of traditional and Orthodox saints, which derives from a range of sources, including manuscripts, other icons and mosaics. Some icons include 24 carat gold highlights.
Abba Moses 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 traditional saints; see my gallery for other images.
The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
