This icon of the Ambelos (The Vine) was made in Greece. The script at the bottom of the icon translates: "Icon of the 17th Century, St. Mark's Monestery, Venice". This richly carved and embossed icon of Christ with the six Apostles on each side (total of 12) and the vine tree, symbolizes Christ's genealogical tree.
Surfaces are made of pure 950 degree silver. Each icon is hand polished and hand hammered on a heavy wooden base. The hand painted sections are egg tempura colors.
