Early Christian art, 5th-6th A. D.
Early Christian art emerged at the dawn of the Christian religion, during the Roman occupation. A type of art that in its beginning lived hidden, often persecuted.
Bricks, made with manual moulds for their later cooking, could contain a stamp or seal, on many occasions was simply the brand of the workshop, or as in this case, a religious design. These bricks were used as headstone to cover Christian graves.
In this brick we see the mark of a smaller, square mould in which we observe the main emblem of early Christian art, the Chi Rho.
The Chi Rho is an image formed by the initials of Christ, the X and the P, sacred emblem that was used in occult and persecuted art from early Christian times.
In addition, this Chi Rho is accompanied by two other Christian religious emblems such as the dove, symbol of peace and the Eucharist, and the ear, symbol of the resurrection.
