This small pendant by Palekh artist Roman Chibisov shows Saint Nicholas, the Miracle Worker, holding the Holy Bible in his left hand. The background of the piece is radiant gold, and the gold is repeated on the cover of the Bible and on the cross design of his vestments. The rectangular piece, on which the Nicholas composition is painted, is raised slightly above the pendant surface, which is decorated close to the edges with black ornamentation against a gold background. Right above the rectangular area of the composition the ornamenation is red (this area turned out too dark in the pictures we took). The back of the icon, where the artist wrote his name, village and year completed, is a burgundy color. A little metal loop at the top allows it to be worn around the neck with an thin gold chain. It would look equally as nice, though, in a tiny frame and placed in a special area of your home.

Please note that the gold in this piece is very uniform and more radiant than these photos might indicate.
