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)
Please Note: This piece is a framed print on board without glass.

This is a special antique religious find. It is simple and elegant with the Miraculous Medal image of Our Lady on above the rosary ring. These were worn by some Catholic religious orders as part of their distinct habits. The clip slides over a wide leather belt and the long 15 decade rosary is hung from the ring.
This is a unique religious devotional brooch. The center is a petite image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile enameled in beautiful bright blue. This medal is framed in pearly lucite on a gold finished background. Gorgeous!
This is a gorgeous vintage rosary. The beads are delicate ovals made of luminous mother of pearl. The centerpiece is hexagonal with an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile. The crucifix is very elegant and includes roses carved into the cross behind the corpus. “France” is printed on the reverse of the crucifix.
