Icon of the Resurrection and Descent into Hell – Traditional Furniture

Icons were created to inspire and educate congregations with images from the Old Testament and the Gospels of the Bible. This 18th century Russian example, painted on a wooden panel and encased by an embossed and shaped silver frame, depicts the Resurrection and Descent into Hell, a scene filled with figures, with Christ at the center in gold robes. He descends into the inferno, standing on the broken gates of hell, where men and women of the Old Testament, including Adam and Eve, were kept captive by Satan, welcoming the numerous righteous people to heaven.
