Icons as Religious Art

Icons as Religious Art
In the broader context of Sacred Art, made up of liturgical objects and devotional images, the Icon is one of the oldest and most representative forms in existence.
Typical of the Byzantine and Slavic culture, it is in most cases a painted table with inscriptions in the Cyrillic alphabet that serve to identify the saint depicted.
The ancient tradition has reached the contemporary age through independent Russian production compared to the Byzantine school since the thirteenth century, which prefers the use of materials in its decorations embossed precious, such as silver.
Colasanti has achieved excellent results with the works produced in Russia between the 19th and 20th centuries.
