19th Century Russian Painted Icon with God Abraham and Three Angels ‘Genesis 18’
This small, antique icon was found in France, and was crafted in Russia, circa 1860. The religious art work features Abraham, the Father, and the three angels visiting him (Genesis 18: 1-15). The round, hand painted scene is in excellent condition and has a long description in Russian on the back. The colors in the figural composition are well maintained, and the figures are realistic and detailed.
“The Lord appeared to Abraham near the large trees of Mamre. Abraham was sitting at the entrance to his tent. It was the hottest time of the day. Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. So he quickly left the entrance to his tent to greet them. He bowed low to the ground. Abraham showed immediate hospitality to the three men, inviting them to rest under a tree and preparing a big meal for them”. Genesis 18.
