6x9 Wood Plaque Icon Reproduction

Christ Pantocrator (I)

  • Text on back of plaque: Christ Pantocrator The most common translation of Pantocrator is "Almighty" or "All­-powerful". The iconic image of Christ Pantocrator was one of the first images of Christ developed in the Early Christian Church and remains a central icon of the Church. In the half­-length image, Christ holds the New Testament in his left hand and makes the gesture of teaching or of blessing with his right. The oldest known surviving example of the icon of Christ Pantocrator was painted in encaustic paint (hot wax painting) on a wood panel in the sixth or seventh century. The icon of Christ Pantocrator is one of the most widely used religious images. Prayer: Jesus all powerful, I give all to You. I place all in Your hands. Bless all that I do and all whom I come in contact with today. I give it all to You. Jesus, my God and my all, I trust in You. Amen.
