Russian Icon of Christ Enthroned

There are many types of Jesus Christ icons, but one of the most interesting is Christ Enthroned. Christ is depicted full-length, seating on the throne, often with a book in His hand, featuring the following inscription, “I am the Light of the World, he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.” The example in the photo is a Russian icon of Christ Enthroned, painted presumably in the 16th century in Tver by the unknown iconographer.
