A Holy Family image is an inspirational addition to any space year round and this one is styled as a 23 x 31 inch Florentine plaque. We're excited about offering you this Holy Family image which is perfect for a sanctuary, chapel, social hall, classroom, or one's living room. The Holy Family image, painted in the Russian icon style, is glued onto this bell shaped wood and decorated in the traditional style of Florentine wall art developed in the 14th and 15th centuries in Florence, Italy. The decorative use of color and gold around the Holy Family image is the legendary artistry of antique Florentine plaques.

The Holy Family image is striking with its own rich artistic heritage of Russian icon painting which considers them to be the 'Gospel in paint'. Silver and gold imprinting decorates the Holy Family image and is intricate to the spiritual presence of the plaque. Icon painters did not seek individual glory, but just as the Holy Family image reminds us, saw themselves as humble servants of God. This resonates with the lives of the Jesus, Mary, and Joseph and is stylistically represented in this Holy Family image. Made in Italy and comes ready to hang.
