Icon Laden Czar Bible.jpg

Kremlin Armory, Moscow, Russia

More jewels and highly detailed religious figures and icons adorn the cover of this treasured Bible. Even the toenails on the human figure have been carefully painted onto this mini-masterpiece. Again, the four insets in the corners depict the four evangelists of the New Testament.

All my Kremlin Armory pictures were taken with one lens, the Nikkor 60mm f2.8 Micro. No "professional" cameras were allowed in (so I had to use my crummy old Nikon D2x), and all my other lenses had to be checked at the front gate before I could enter.

Nevertheless, an impressive capture of the cover.
If only the faith that created all the religious works you pictured had been a living faith!
