JESUS (icon)

This icon is copied from Rublevâ's very old and treasured icon of Jesus. The story was told to me that during the Russian revolution when churches were being destroyed and icons were burned, someone secretly removed this icon from the church and hid it in a barn under hay. Many decades later it was found with much of the gold and paint eroded away but with Jesus's face remaining on the panels. The wood was exposed making it appear as if Jesus were looking out from an opening in the wall.
