The Harrowing of Hades is the icon most often used to represent the Resurrection of Christ: the Feast of Feasts, Pascha (Easter). In this scene, Christ is seen coming out of the dark pit of Hades, bringing with Him all of the righteous Old Testament saints. The Lord is pulling Adam and Eve out, having smashed the gates that kept them captive. This is the great and universal triumph of life over death, light over darkness. It is an exact depiction of the Orthodox paschal hymn, "Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life!"

    Received as a gift - incredible

    Posted by Christian Fredrickson on Dec 27th 2022

    Legacy Icons quality is always very good, with the image being very crisp, the wood being smoothly sanded on the back and edges, and a thick print used for the icon. Nothing but good things to say. The icon itself is incredible, and shows Christ breaking down the doors of Hades.

    The Harrowing of Hades

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 16th 2019

    A high quality particularly with the wax coating. a wonderful mix of colors. I've given it and other icons I purchased from Legacy Icons as presents to my children. Very satisfied with it. Arrived on time and well packaged.
