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)

This is a beautiful print depicting The Last Supper after Leonardo da Vinci. Christ is shown at the center with a magnificent halo as He reveals the miracle of the Eucharist. The Apostles are seated to either side talking amongst themselves in alarm. The print is vibrant and full of energy.
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. The wounds of the Passion can be seen in His hands as gazes out with an expression of profound love. It is very moving.
Condition: The frame has some scratches to be expected with age. Please See Pictures.
This is a striking vintage madonna. The Blessed Virgin Mary is shown as a young woman wearing a beautiful veil framing her face with many soft folds. Our lady is elegantly poised with her head slightly bowed, her eyes lowered, and her palms together in adoration.
This piece is ceramic painted to look like wood. There reverse has the original tag indicating that was handmade in Germany.
This is a stunning vintage religious icon. It is an image of John the Baptist. He is shown wearing his hair shirt covered in a blue/green cloak. He has large red wings, symbolizing his role as a messenger, and he his holding his severed head in one arm. Both heads have radiant gold halos that shimmer in the light. The banner St John is holding reads: “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand”. Wonderful.
