In October 2012, I participated in a class with Maestro Alexander Stalnov in Pistoia, Italy. Along with 15 other students, I worked on the icon Christ Halki based upon a prototype located in the Cathedral of the Dormition in the Kremlin, Moscow.
Here is a photograph of my work toward the end of the nine-day class. You can see two enlargements of the prototype that help guide my work. The sketch at the lower left shows the first two lights on the Sankir.
