Icon of Christological Scenes

An icon is a religious work of art, most commonly a painting. The practise originates from eastern art but was adopted by the Italian catholic church in the early 13th century.

This icon originating from 18th century Italy shows a variety of Christological scenes including the nativity which takes up the centre of the panel. This panel is part of a pair showing different scenes from the bible. The scenes in both panels are typically Roman Catholic and follow in the tradition of the works of Giovanni Maria Scupola, active in late 15th to early 16th-century Otranto.
