A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of the Tree of Jesse
, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer. The Jesse Tree
represents the family tree, or genealogy of Jesus Christ
beginning with creation and continuing through the Old Testament, to the coming of the Messiah.
The tree is named after Jesse
, the father of King David
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.
