Christ the Centre

This Icon-painting I would like to call "Christ the Centre". The eternal sphere in blue with the seraphim (angels) penetrates the world-sphere - or perhaps more correctly said: The world is based on eternity. In the four edges you see the symbols of the 4 evangelists. Christ sits majestetically enthroned in the Centre - all leads to Him.

Christ wears a robe wich is interwoven with gold - gold is the symbol of eternity - the eternal Self. Likewise all is based / surrounded with gold - all takes place in eternity.

The painting was created according to an Icon of Andrew Rubljow, the famous Russian Icon painter, who lived in the 14./15th. century.
