Lovely older Icon, we think Russian, it is signed on the bottom of the metal Oklad covering in what we think is Russian , could be Greek. We think the Oklad, the ornate metal covering over the art, is copper and it has a fabulous age patina, we have not cleaned or polished it at all. It is in good overall condition with significant wear on the edges that are overlapped on the wood on all sides, and there is one place at the tip of His raised hand where it is loose or broken in a small spot from the art underneath. As to the art, it feels like wood and looks like a painting but we think it is an old printing well glazed over. On the bottom overlap of the oklad are signature which we cannot identify, see close up photo for those. This lovely Icon measures 8 & 3/4" by 7" and is 3/4" thick. There are several small smudges or scars on the exposed art area at the shoulder, chin and wrist from age.
