A SCARCE RUSSIAN ICON OF CHRIST EMMANUEL WITH ANGELS, 18TH CENTURY.  An early example of this type held by the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow, dates back to the pre-Mongol period of the 12th century. It is sometimes referred to as the “Angelic Deisis.” Others just call it “The Savior Emmanuel with Angels.” Although no inscriptions remain on the Tretyakov example the two angels are generally identified by their clothing as the Archangel Mikhail and Gabriel. Another similar but later example attributed to 17th century iconographer Ivan Dyakonov, which is currently housed in the Church of Elijah the Prophet in Yaroslavl, and dated to circa 1650, identifies specifically with period inscriptions the two angels as Mikhail and Gabriel. At center in this example is seen a bust image of Christ Emmanuel (Christ as a youth). He is flanked on either side by angels, presumably Mikhail (left) and Gabriel (right). His title is taken from Isaiah 7:14: “Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel.” The word Emmanuel is the Greek form of the Hebrew meaning God is with Us. Emmanuel is a representation of the Son, “begotten of the Father before all worlds". 13 inches x 29.5 inches (33 x 75 cm).
