Madrid Pantokrator

Ivory plaque of Christ Pantokrator, the name given early depictions of Christ in which he holds the New Testament in his left hand and offers a gesture of blessing with his right. An image of Christ Pantokrator, "Ruler of All," carved on an ivory plaque that was sold at auction in Madrid two years ago.
