The Last Supper Byzantine Icon 30x40cm -Jesus Christ 12 apostles religious folk painting egg tempera on thick plywood



The Icon of Last Supper of Christ in a folk, almost naive- style representation of the scene. A carved panel on the top hand-painted with egg-tempera shining with an antique copper gold background

The Lord is seated on the one side next to His favorite disciple John- On the other side is Peter. Right on the center the only one, not looking on the Lord, reaching his hand to grab as much as he can, is Judas the Iscariot.

On each side the words "Mystikos Deipnos " The Last Supper, are writen as well as Jesus Christ (IC XC- Iesous Christos) in Greek.

It is a gessoed canvas size 30 x 40 cm and 21mm thick  painted according to the rules of the old byzantine art of hagiography or else holy iconography.  After painting, the icon is varnished (with a natural resin varnish) and then we leave it to dry for several days to produce an artwork that will last.

The icon is shipped thoroughly protected  with some extras from our shop, perfect for a very original unique gift
