A Russian icon dating back to the 18th-19th century.
It is a very rare piece depicting “The protection of the Mother of God”
It is an egg-tempera painting on a wooden panel.
By observing the work, it is possible to distinguish all the depicted characters and read their history.
Thanks to the good storage condition, the faces and the writings are clearly visible even though the painting is not particularly bright.
Nevertheless, the piece has some chipping and small missing pieces (in the lower right side, left side and centre on the right side of Our Lady's body).
