This is a stunning portrait of Christ. Our Lord is shown giving a benediction with one hand while pointing to His Sacred Heart with the other. This is a highly detailed piece: Christ’s Sacred Heart radiates light while wrapped in thorns and topped in a flaming cross.

This is a remarkable antique religious print. It is a large image of Saint Brigid of Kildare. She is shown wearing a black and white habit and holding a book. She is walking a path through a verdant green field with a cow and building, likely a monastery, in the background.
Saint Brigid lived in Ireland c. 451 – 525. She was a disciple of Saint Patrick’s and was known for her love of the poor. Many of her acts of charity involved the provision of milk, butter, or even cattle to poor people who sought her help. Saint Brigid was the foundress of several monasteries including the well known monastery of Kildare. She is the patron saint of Ireland, poets, dairymaids, blacksmiths, healers, cattle, fugitives, Irish nuns, midwives, and new-born babies. Feast Day: February 1.
This is a beautiful vintage piece of religious art. It is a print of the 12th century “Icon of the Transfiguration” currently in the Louvre Museum collections.
In this piece Christ is the centre and focus of the image, his hand held in a blessing, eyes directed at us. His clothes are depicted “white as light” as the Gospel writers describe, and the glory of God overshadowing the scene is shown by the mandorla around his body. From His body, shafts of light are shown striking each of the five others present: to Christ’s right, the Prophet Elijah; to His left Moses; scattered about His feet, the Apostles John, Peter, and James.
The mosaic captures the drama of the event: the three Apostles on their faces in confusion, whilst Christ stands serenely in the centre above them, flanked by Moses and Elijah, who appear to be blessing Him. (Iconreader)
