Hand painted icons of Jesus Christ

The Entry to Jerusalem

2211
A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of the Entry to Jerusalem, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

The triumphal entry into Jerusalem takes place in the days before the Last Supper, marking the beginning of his Passion. In John 12:9-11, after raising Lazarus from the dead, crowds gather around Jesus and believe in him, and the next day the multitudes that had gathered for the feast in Jerusalem welcome Jesus as he enters Jerusalem. The entry into Jerusalem day known as Palm Sunday, is celebrated a week before Easter Sunday.

Made using traditional materials (selected aged timber frames, egg tempera, 24K gold leaf, natural powder paint and varnishes) and old techniques. It is an exact reproduction of an antique Byzantine masterpiece.

The icon bears the artist's signature on the front and the certificate of authenticity on the back.

We can have any image or Christian scene hand made on commission. Please take a look at an indicative list of additional icons available, or contact us for more information.
