Orthodox Icon Medal Pendant, Holy Face of Jesus
An impressive Orthodox Christian icon pendant of Christ, cast in bronze. The image is in the style of Eastern Christian inconography, showing a portrait of Jesus on the front with a plain back.
This type of image with a cloak behind Christ is sometimes called a Mandillon icon, from the original Greek word "mandilion" meaning cloak or tabard.
This is a reasonably large pendant medal, at 5.5cm tall including the fancy top loop (bail). The back of the medal is smooth, showing some marks of the original maker's tools. The photos show both the front & back of the same medal.
A lovely pendant for wearing, display or use in a rosary or prayer beads. Made in Greece.
Size: 5.5cm tall x 3.75cm wide. The hole through the bail (loop) is 4mm.
