Russian Icon “The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades” in Silver Oklad

18th-century Russian icon “The Resurrection – The Harrowing of Hades, with Twelve Feasts.” This beautiful icon is a wonderful example of the late Baroque style of Eastern Orthodox iconography, inspired by Western European art. It is covered with a masterfully made silver oklad with etching, engraving, embossing, and selective gilding. The oklad was made in the 19th century in St. Petersburg by an unknown silversmith.
