Fiery Icon Ascension of the Prophet Elias

Hard wood panel with two sponkis, tempera on levka on wood about 1780.

In the center of the lower part of the sitting, Elijah waits for a crow who feeds him with bread. Top left, the scene with the slaughter on Mount Carmel. After three years of drought, Elias gathers the people and sacrifices a bull on the altar to find the true God. Below, the scene of an angel waking Elijah exhausted and giving him bread and water. On the right, crossing the Jordan, which St. Elijah shared with his cloak. At the top, Elias climbs to the sky in a fiery chariot pulled by four horses.

Rare collectible object with many legends sine life.

Very good state
