Learn how this particular Icon and many of the icons made before the 9th century were  likely done-in encaustic, or more likely, the cold wax method.  The Christ Pantocrator of St. Catherine’s Monastery at Sinai is one of the oldest Byzantine icons, dating from the sixth century AD.[1] It is the earliest known well-known version of the Pantocrator style that still survives today, and is regarded by historians and scholars to be one of the most important and recognizable works in the study of Byzantine art as well as Eastern Orthodox Christianity.[2  to learn more visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ_Pantocrator_(Sinai)
