This beautiful example of Western iconography is a manuscript illumination by Haregarius of Tours (France), dating from about the year 850.
Christ is enthroned in the center, surrounded by the four Evangelists (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) and the four major Prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel).
Typical especially of Western iconography, the Evangelists are also represented by their symbolic representations: an angel for Matthew, a lion for Mark, an ox for Luke, and an eagle for John. These symbols come from the four living creatures in the prophecy of Ezekiel.
I’m wry pleased with this beautiful icon. I’m glad I purchased two as I absolutely want to save one for myself
Please advise the indentues of the prophets.
Exceptional detail and clarity, even in the smallest size. Colors true as represented. Styled after the original masters.
