Object identification notes

Christ Pantocrator enthroned shows similarity to some Italo-Cretan icons of the same period.


A traditional depiction of Christ Pantocrator enthroned. A precisely executed canonical image with a well-found ratio between the individual elements. There is a tendency to pronounced elegance through elongated proportions and the rhythmics created by the curve of the back-piece of the throne. The figure is cut through by gracefully gilt glints on the folds of the garment.
