Large Russian Icon - the Crucifixion of Christ with Mourners in brass revetment cover

A large church icon depicting the crucified Christ flanked by the Virgin Mary, St. John the Apostle, St. Mary Magdalene, and St. Longinus the Centurion. In the corners are depicted the Sun and the Moon, behind the Cross are the walls of Jerusalem, and below is the Adam's head. The enameled plaque, just above Christ’s head, reads "The Crucifixion of Our Lord." The abbreviated inscriptions around Christ's head read: "Jesus Christ, King of Glory and Son of God." The heavy parcel-silvered brass revetment cover and the halos are decorated with intricate polychrome enamel. The icon dates to the 18th century and the embellished cover was added in the 19th century.
