Description In the Monastery of the Virgin of Kazan in Russia, there is one more illustration of the Christ as Pantocrator. The painting was created in the 16th century, during the empire of Ivan IV the Terrible, and it constitutes a characteristic sample of the iconography of Christ by the Russian School. It was inspired by the first image of Christ Pantocrator, in the first half of the 6th century; the encaustic image was located in the Monastery of St. Catherine of Sinai.

Handmade icon, crafted in the traditional method of the Byzantine hagiography, on canvas with egg tempera; the image is coated with pure silver, locally gilded. It has been decorated with enamel and Swarovski crystals.
