Mstera holds a special place, due to its more ancient and maybe more colorful traditions. A special place in the Mstera icon painting tradition was held by Byzantine art, the successors of which were first and foremost the Vladimir and Suzdal icon painters. The Byzantine technique of painting with flux and Byzantine icon painting was preserved in Mstera for many centuries, right up until the start of the 20th century. Almost the whole Mstera population was involved to some extent with the icon-painting industry.

As a rule, icon-painting workshops were handed down from generation to generation and were a family business. One of the largest icon-painting workshops was that of Suslov (a man who came from the shores of the White Sea) and the oldest was that of the Old Believer, Yantsev.

LARGE MSTERA ICON SHOWING the PROPHET ELIJAH and HIS FIERY ASCENT to HEAVEN. Russian school Christian Icon by Mstera masters. The icon is dedicated to the Vita of one of the greatest prophets of the Old Testament Elijah, a man who along with Moses was seen as the forerunner to the miracles and the Resurrection of Christ. In Russia, Elijah was also seen as the saint of thunder, rain and good weather, as well as the defender and guide to the souls of mankind in the afterlife. This is one of the reasons why the most popular depiction of the saint in Russian iconography is his fiery ascension to the heavens. The composition of the icon follows the traditional scheme, popularized in 16th-century Russian religious art. It includes the scene of the three-year dwelling of the Prophet Elijah in the desert, near the stream of Horaf (3 Kings 17: 1-6). In the upper left-hand corner of the centerpiece, the saint is shown in the cave, being fed by the raven descending from the skies. Below we find the scene of the angel's revelation to the sleeping Elijah. According to the biblical text, the Prophet - worn out by his prayer for death - fell asleep under a bush. The angel who came in Elijah's sleep touched the saint and showed his food and drink, warning him of the distant journey that he must undertake (3 Kings 19:5-7). In the center we see Elijah parting the waters of the Jordan with his mantle. During the journey, undertaken by Elijah and his apprentice Elisha, their path was blocked by the River Jordan.

Seeing this, the Prophet took off his mantle (made of sheep or goatskin) and struck the waters, which parted ways and let the two saints pass along the dried riverbed (4 Kings 2:7-8). For his pious life and devotion to God, Elijah was accorded the highest honour: he was taken up - alive, in the flesh - into Heavens on a fiery chariot (4 Kings 2: 1-14). This episode is traditionally represented in the upper third of the centerpiece.

Slightly below we see the figure of the Prophet Elisha, who is reaching up - trying to take hold of Elijah's mantle, as a symbolic sign of the transition of the prophetic gift. The thick and bright layers of paint of the relatively small icon create an impression of enamel work, decorated with a near calligraphic painting style so cherished by the best Mstera masters of the 19th century.

The iconographers of Mstera embraced the style of the early Russian art nouveau, which combined the decorative aspects of traditional iconography, elements of the pseudo-Russian ornamented style and the innovative implementation of color. Take pleasure in this gift and prevent all bad luck.

Deliver everyone from the future torment, who call out to you here together: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia┬╗.
