Description:

AN IMPORTANT AND MONUMENTAL ICON SHOWING THE LAST JUDGEMENT Russian, 18th century Tempera on wood panel. Finely executed with gold highlights. This icons depicts the Last Judgement, a prophetic vision of the second coming of Christ at the end of times. The complex and richly figurative composition unfolds on several horizontal registers. The central part of the detailed version of Last Judgement showing Christ the Judge. On either side of Him are the Mother of God and St John the Baptist, interceding before the Lord and asking Him to show mercy to humankind, and the Twelve Apostles, seated on their thrones to judge both the living and the dead. At Christ’s right hand (the left side of the icon) there are scenes of Paradise and the depiction of the Righteous; at his left hand (the right side of the icon) is Hell with the punished and tortured sinners. Throughout the whole body of the composition lies the winding serpent of the ordeals, coming out of fiery Gehenna with Satan enthroned. Above is the image of the New Testament Trinity, below are the personified depictions of the torments of sinners. The Righteous, led by Apostle Peter, go in a procession towards the gates of Paradise, while the ascent of monks to the Heavenly Jerusalem, depicted in the top left section. The grand depiction of the Second and Final Coming of Christ is expressed in this vivid image, illustrating the text of the Apocalypse and of other literary sources of the icon in great detail. A longer text at the borders identifying the represented figures and events. Partially restored. 139.5 x 103.5 cm.
