Christ's Resurrection, with the feastdays of the Orthodox Church

The icon represents: “The Resurrection of Christ, as well as the series of feast days”.

The most common representation of the Easter image in icon art shows the completion of the work of redemption in the form of Christ's descent into Hell. Representations on this theme take up much of the content of the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus, which tells in detail how Jesus descended into hell after his death in order to save the righteous from the power of Satan.

On the presented icon, Christ is depicted in a radiant mandorla. It shows a host of holy figures, revealing through the jaws of hell visible in the left corner of the painting, the path to the joys of eternal glory.
As the patriarch of the human race, Adam has the privilege of being ruled by the wrist of Christ. Eve remains deeply bowed at the feet of the Lord. The saints are arranged around Christ.
At the bottom right is the chastisement of Satan by an angel.
In the center of the upper middle part of the icon appears a second image of Christ surrounded by a mandorla, representing him who rose gloriously from his tomb. The angels stand alongside Christ.

The solemnities of the Orthodox Church are organized around the central theme as follows:

The solemnities of the Orthodox Church are as follows in order from left to right and top to bottom:

1. Birth of Mary
2. Mariae Introduction to the Temple
3. Annunciation of Mary
4. Birth of Christ
5. The baptism of Christ
6. Presentation of Christ in the Temple
7. Transfiguration of Christ on Mount Tabor
8. Christ's entry into Jerusalem
9. Ascension Day
9. Erection of the True Cross
10. Holy Trinity
12. Dormition of the Mother of God

Christ, God the Father and the Holy Spirit are depicted as a white dove amid a bank of clouds above the subjects.

The images of the most important holidays of the Orthodox Church have a strictly prescribed basic structure. Besides the Bible, the church's treasury of legends and apocrypha still serves as a source.
The description of the holiday is written in Church Slavonic script around the edges of the icon.

Attribution: The icon is composed of ferns in tempera on a linden wood panel. The artwork is a North Russian work, created around 1750-70.
