This beautiful illuminated manuscript is an incredible example of early Western iconography. It comes from the 9th century "Book of Kells," an illuminated Gospel book produced in Ireland. The iconography depicts the Theotokos and Christ, surrounded by angels and an intricate decorative border.
An interesting icon

This is a really interesting icon and it has been well put together however I would not recommend purchasing it in large size because the vibrancy of the colours and the image clarity is not as good as my other legacy icons. Medium might be a better option for those interested. I do appreciate Legacy offering western works and I hope to see more of them in the future.
