Egolpion Design 03 Gold Plated With Hand Made Enamel Icon
An Engolpion or Enkolpion is a devotional pendant or medallion meant to be worn around the neck and is worn as a vestment by Orthodox and Eastern Catholic bishops. All bishops wear a particular kind of engolpion called a Panagia, which depicts the Theotokos. All primates and some bishops below primatial rank have the dignity of a second engolpion, which usually depicts Jesus.

The fine enamel image normally bears an image of the Holy Virgin Mary holding Christ on special requests we can have the enamel only with image of Christ.

The enamel image is set against a gold plated background decorated with semi-precious stones, in a very detailed pattern to bring a very beautiful and artistic outcome following the Orthodox Tradition.

The fine enamel making was from a technique that may have been invented in Byzantium, according the many historic records.

Offered in a velvet case with the chain for the neck.
Size: 9cm x 18cm
