Icoon, Van de transfiguratie - Tempera op tafel - Eerste helft 19e eeuw


The Transfiguration event is a key Trinitarian expression in the history of Salvation: Christ appears as the splendour of the Father, filled with the power of the Spirit, and reveals to the astonished disciples another dimension of mysterious existence, which they do not understand but whose irresistible fascination they feel. The intuition of God's communional nature generates Peter's question, naïve in its formulation but profoundly true: “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters...” (Matthew, 17:4).
The key theme of the icon is light, which in the Transfiguration reveals that it has its true source in Christ and radiates all around, obscuring the natural light and transfiguring nature and man:
in the upper part are represented Christ, and at his sides Moses and Elijah; in the lower part are visible the apostles who fall to the ground dazzled by the splendour of the vision. Restorations.
