Tradizione Artigianale Etiope | Icona Sacra

108,00 

Appartenenti alla Chiesa Ortodossa Etiopica, a sua volta congiunta alla chiesa ortodossa orientale, gli Etiopi da secoli professano il loro credo in maniera costante e tenace, narrando in ogni modo gli eventi ed i fatti terreni di Cristo, Maria e dei Santi e di coloro che hanno reso gloriosa tale dottrina. Una delle più alte manifestazioni di questa rispettosa arte sono appunto le icone, dipinte da semplici preti e monaci nei monasteri Copti. I soggetti prediletti sono la Madonna, Cristo ed i Santi, tra i quali il più celebrato è San Giorgio, patrono d’Etiopia, raffigurato che combatte il drago. Quella delle icone Etiopi è una pittura assolutamente unica in tutta l’Africa, che nel corso del tempo ha subito influenze così diverse, dalla Bizantina all’Armena, a quella Siriana, Palestinese, Italiana ed Indiana, da renderne esclusivo lo stile, dalle forme armoniche ed in continuo cambiamento. Nel ritrarre questi delicati soggetti sono stati di fatto due i periodi più significativi, un primo di tradizione medioevale, con raffigurazioni piatte, senza prospettiva, con schemi abbastanza rispettati, quali il colore del viso dei santi, o bianco o rosa, e del diavolo, solo nero, ed ancora i buoni ritratti di faccia o al massimo di tre quarti, mentre i malvagi sempre di profilo. In seguito, oltre a rappresentazioni religiose, si iniziarono a dipingere anche temi naturalistici, con vedute legate alla regina di Saba, scene di caccia e conviviali.

Questa riproduzione propone la figura di San Giorgio a cavallo da una parte, dall’altra un arcangelo.

Descrizione

Belonging to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, which in turn has been jointed with the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Ethiopians have professed their belief in a constant and tenacious way for centuries, telling in every way the events and worldly facts of Christ, Mary, the saints and all those who have contributed to such a glorious doctrine. One of the highest manifestations of this respectful art are precisely the icons, painted by humble priests and monks in Coptic monasteries. Favorite subjects are Mary, Christ and the saints, among which the most celebrated is St. George, saint patron of Ethiopia, depicted fighting the dragon. Icon painting is an unique art in the whole of Africa, which over time has been subjected to so many influences – from the Byzantine to the Armenian, passing by the Syrian, Palestinian, Italian and Indian – making its style peculiar and unprecedented due to its harmonic and ever-changing forms. In portraying these delicate subjects, two were the most significative periods: the first one derivates from the medieval tradition and it stands out for its flat depictions without perspective and with respect to rigid schemes, such as the color of the face of the saints – white or pink – and the devil’s one – always black -, or even the characterization of good people with frontal/three-quarters faces and evil ones always in side profiles. As a result, in addition to religious representations, they also began to paint naturalistic themes, with subjects related to the Queen of Sheba, hunting scenes and convivial ones.
These paintings feature the figure of St. George on horseback on one side, and an archangel on the other.
