An antique Greek Orthodox Russian Icon painting which presents the ceremony of circumcision also known as “Brit milah”. This painting depicts Mary handing baby Jesus over to the mohel (pronounced Moil) to perform the procedure. Laid on the table is a pair of scissors and a knife or scalpel. According to the gospel of Luke, Jesus was circumcised on the 8th day after his birth staying true to Jewish traditions. In the painting are also several attendees that appear to be a mix of prophets, disciples and maternal figures including but not limited to Joseph, Paul, Peter, Luke and Mary Magdalene. In total 9 individuals appear in the painting and all the figures appear to have eastern European features. This image also displays several hand-painted texts that appear to be written in Russian.

Very unique, one of a kind, original 16.5″ x 12.5″ (total size to include frame) oil on tin painting believed to be by listed, famous artist Retablo. I believe his signature mark is “soiled”/rusted over on left side, midway up the frame. Or, even better, Its not a Retablo and the artist signature mark is down on the bottom right side with what looks like a W with a T going through it. Either way, it is unique, a little bit scary, and tells a story that I’ve only begun to understand. It is reminiscent of Da Vinci mixed with Salvador Dali and Folk Art depicting a midevil religious scene/story. Notice the rocket / jet on the right! It is a “chilly” depiction but does not give any feeling or energy of that nature at all. It is rather memorizing in that you can look at it for hours and a story begins to unfold. It is a soft, calm, painting with an ornate carved, deep detailed wood frame of a natural light color. It does not look painted or stained. This particular piece of art has not been altered, has minor rust with small areas of paint missing and areas that need cleaned as I only did a very light surface clean to it and not sure if existing can or should be cleaned as it may change / damage the art. The frame can be cleaned deeper, I’m sure…. I consider to be in very good condition compared to others this age.. Almost excellent when compared.
