Description

This silver Venetian Grosso is featuring the figure of Christ Pantocrator (Christ enthroned as ruler of all), a motif copied from Byzantine coinage and maintained today in Russian Orthodox art. Christ wears a tunic and himation (rectangular cloth draped over the left shoulder and about the body) and has a voided cross nimbus (outlined cross within a halo) behind his head. His left-hand holds a book of the gospel. This silver artifact was minted over 600 years ago and is now handset in a sterling silver pendant.
