Product Description

The Holy Archangel Gabriel, who is also known as the “Christmas Angel,” is the angel of Announcement, acting as a messenger of God. Along with the Archangel Michael, he is an important figure in heaven, who plays a significant role in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and some other faiths. It is no wonder that the Archangel Gabriel icon is highly venerated in Russia and throughout the world.

Painted lacquer or matte eggs with religious themes have been used as special gifts since the earliest Czars ruled Russia. Appearing about the time the Russian Orthodox Church was established, these eggs symbolize the "new life" brought by Jesus. The eggs were thought to bring happiness, inspiration, and spiritual well-being to the owners. In the past these eggs have been produced from metal, bone, or hand-crafted from gold, silver and ceramics.

Our passion eggs reflect influences primarily of the Moscow / Kremlin schools, which follow closely the traditions of icon painters. The difficulty of painting on a sphere reflects the special and unique talents of the masters who paint in this form. smooth, rounded off lines, called "living lines", perfect composition, golden colors and the contrast between light and dark characterize the very best of this art form. Using traditional egg-based tempera for the icon is a special feature of this piece. Approx 8.5" tall
