Icon of Christ “The True Vine”

A beautiful icon of Christ “The True Vine.” This is a quite rare type of Jesus Christ iconography, featuring the Lord sitting near the top of a many-branched grapevine, with the Twelve Apostles around Him in the branches going out to preach the Word to the ends of the earth. Christ holds an open Gospel with the text saying “I am the vine, you the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.”
