Russian Icon of the Great-Martyr Catherine

Russian icon of the Great-Martyr Catherine, with 12 hagiographical scenes. The icon depicts Saint Catherine of Alexandria, one of the most venerated saints of the Christian world, who was martyred for her faith in Christ when she was only 18 years old. Her relics are now kept in Saint Catherine’s Monastery in Egypt and are known for their miraculous healing of the sick. This beautiful icon with a detailed variation of Catherine’s hagiography is one of the grandest examples of saint icons created in Vetka in the 19th century.
