Dating to the nineteenth century, this icon is copper, and depicts a crucifix with saints, angels, cyrillic lettering and other Christian symbols. It measures 9" x 5 3/4" and has a dark patina, with the lighter copper showing through on the front on high sections of the casting. The back is very dark, and has an applied tag "sitka alaska 1972", perhaps a date of acquisition. Nice detail and deep rich patina make this a particularly nice example of metal Russian icons.
