This is an outstanding museum quality piece, for those who really have enough taste and eye for the best icons of the beg. of 20th century.
Enjoy, if you can apprehend it.
The icon is hand painted in kovcheg on a cypress wooden board in 1915 and signed by the artist A.G.Smekalkin.
Very few icons are sign.

Every thing shows that it is not an ordinary piece.
