Artist's description:

"The Holly Trinity" is a romanian traditional icons on glass painted in reverse side technique, with hand painted wooden frame.
The theme of this icon is inspired by Genesis, chapter. 18. Three angels bless, seated around a table. In the background is seen the oak and the tent of Abraham in the form of houses. This is the only canonical representation of the Holy Trinity, because nobody saw God the Father and the Holy Spirit only appears sometimes as a dove and is not proper to be represented.

If you want this icon at another size or if you want a painting with another saint or another scene, do not hesitate to contact me. I will make for you a recommendation and a price offer.

Painting icons on glass is a traditional Romanian activity. Folk icons on glass are painted on the reverse side of the glass. First, the outlines are drawn with black inkr. Then each area is filled with tempera or oil colors. This has been a Romanian folk tradition since the 18th century. In our villages, the knowledge is passed from generation to generation, from parents to children. Many artists remain anonymous. These icons are primitive,colorful, glamorous - and very modern as a plastic conception.
A „definition” of the glass icon says that it has to be done according to a model (izvod). It usually has no anatomical proportions, but balanced chromatic patterns . The models currently used are 200-300 years old.
The writing is Cyrillic. There are several elements of a typical icon on glass: it represents a character or more, the remaining space is filled with flowers borders, rope borders, or stars borders.

Materials used:

glass, wood, oil colors, acrylic, gold leaf
