Ali Aboutaam Jesus Christ
Byzantine Amethyst Cameo of Christ Pantokrator\n11th-12th century A.D.\nL: 2.29 cm\n\nW: 2.96 cm\nH: 1.31 cm
GENEVA, Switzerland, April 10, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Next Sunday, April 16, at 2 p.m., in Geneva, Switzerland, Ali Aboutaam, President of Phoenix Ancient Art, one of the world’s leading dealers in rare and exquisite antiquities, will lecture about the exciting findings of a rare Byzantine amethyst cameo pendant of Jesus Christ (Christ Pantokrator). Christ Pantokrator is represented in half-length and full-face with his head slightly turned to the left. In the frame of the gem on both sides of the shoulders, one can see engravings of Greek characters: I(…)C X(…)C (Jesus Christ). This remarkable sparkling and pure amethyst gem is closely linked to the sapphire cameo of St. John the Baptist housed in the Louvre (MS 91).
Ali Aboutaam excitedly says, “While conducting research about the provenance of this spectacular gem, I stumbled upon a black-and-white photo of this piece as being part of an exhibition ‘L’Antiquité Chrétienne’ at the Musée du Louvre in 1958!” The exhibition consisted of 81 Christian objects and was published by Etienne Coche de la Ferté in Paris.
The representation of Christ Pantokrator on a precious stone cameo is very rare. A small group dated to this period was preserved, including a beautiful sapphire cameo, now in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection.
Byzantium rediscovered an appreciation for glyptic after the iconoclastic crisis, yet exclusively favoring religious subjects showing Christ, the Virgin and the saints in either half- or full-length. Amethyst and sapphire were luxury stones used almost exclusively for the most prestigious objects.
Ali adds, “It is so rare to find old publications for miniature objects like this one because these were intimately and privately treasured in jewelry boxes and small drawers. One can imagine the pendant decorating the necklace close to the heart of a faithful Christian in the 12th century.”
The lecture will be at 6, rue Verdaine in Old Town, Geneva on Sunday, April 16, 2023.
