Icon of 1897. I restored a little and made a new frame from a hundred-year-old oak. I am very amazed at the beauty of the colors. There are no signs of fading (loss of color), old age is felt. Hats off to the masters of that time …

May the Almighty hear our prayers …


Sasha, are the paintings 100 years old ??

Yes, she is 123 years old. Chromolithographic printing house of D. Plyushchev. Odessa city 1897.
Now this technology is not used. Several stone slabs were cut by hand, then paint was applied to these slabs and printed in turn. This is a very time consuming and complex process.

The photo is not high quality …. I was shooting with my old cell phone. (as always in a hurry …. LOL ….)
In the vicinity, it is mesmerizing …. Each feature of the face and shape are visible. The colors did not fade …..
I made the frame for glass, but glass does not allow making a good photo.

On the reverse side, inscriptions in the Old Church Slavonic language are clearly preserved.
Even the street where the printing house was located is indicated – Srednefantanskaya street. Fantanka, mentioned in many old songs.
