Russian Orthodox Nun (Русская Православная монахиня). She has been carved with her hands clasped before her, holding prayer beads and a cross. On her head is a black "apostolnik" (veil) with a gold cross. She wears an "epanokamelavkion" (long stole) over her full-length inner rasa. Orthodox monastics do not have "orders" as in the Catholic Church. Orthodox monks and nuns lead identical spiritual lives, living under vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Finely carved and painted in the monastic settlement of Sergiev-Posad. Signed by the artist, 1996. Some very light wear to the black paint, otherwise near fine. 10¼" tall. 1 only.
