Radu Dincă Handpainted miniature - Seraphim

13,68 EUR
The angels’ wings are showing their estrangement from any earthly and worldly thought, although they are close to us the people. Their wings are the image of their quick movement and burning desire to accomplish God’s will. The wings show that angels are ready to serve people and to protect them with their cover. The Seraphims are represented with six wings: with two wings they are covering their faces, with two their legs and with two they fly. The wings covering their faces and legs express the piety, humbleness and fear they appear with before God.
Measurements - miniature 6x6 cm; envelope 21x12 cm; total weight 30 grams.

Radu Dincă was always fascinated with iconography and painting on glass, especially by using the old peasant glass-painting technique that came along in the nineteenth century in Transylvania. This special and old technique inspired Radu in creating icons and miniatures depicting religious motifs or ancestral Romanian symbols.
The miniature booklets are crafted in two different ways: by the icons technique or by the stained glass technique. For the icons technique, the artist paints on glass using a tempera mixture of egg yolk and oil; this combination lasts for hundreds of years. Then he makes the background with gold, silver and copper leafs and finally he frames the glass with pieces of twine. For the stained glass technique, Radu paints the chosen symbol with thin strokes of bright colors on a piece of transparent glass. Afterwards, the painted glass is joined with another clean piece of glass. They are held together with a copper frame modelled by hand. Therefore, light easily goes through the whole ensemble for a mesmerizing visual effect.
