19th century or earlier hand-painted Russian Icon of an Apostle on Wood. This piece was brought back from Russia by a family that immigrated to the United States just before World War 2. The painting on wood measures 10 x 12. The painting has a surreal primitive folksy quality that mesmerizes the viewer. The eyes seem to follow one no matter where they are in the room.
