Vintage Icon Infectious Diseases St. Charalambos Silver Oklad Hand Painted Board

This listing features the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Greek Orthodox and Latin Church icon, Saint Charalambos, also known as Haralambos. Means glowing with joy in Greek.

The classic Byzantine depiction shows him wearing the robes of a priest or bishop, holding a Gospel book, with his right hand raised in blessing. Hagiographic legend credits him with the special gift of healing pestilent diseases and there are numerous accounts of him halting epidemics of typhus, cholera and the plague. Some say he was martyred at the ripe old age of 113.

I guess that explains such a long beard. The overall measurements are 9 1/4 inches tall by 7 3/4 inches wide by 1/4 inches thick and unframed. The metal decorations are made with gold chased silver oklad, and the face is hand painted with tempura and gesso on board. His shining aura is a raised, separate metal detail intended to stand out.

It is held in place by three tiny nails. There is a separate backing covered in crimson silk that has an old type face written note verifying these materials. It's as is condition is exceptional, but the new owner would be wise to protect it under glass in a shadow frame.

Charalambos will become a good deal more popular in our modern times of struggle with COVID and other physical challenges. For more information about Saint Charalambos, visit. Please check out other uncommon items currently offered from our family's estate.
