A large Church icon probably funded though a special commission. In the top register are images of The Virgin of The Fallen [top left] and the Virgin of The Sign. in the bottom are St Antipas and John Chrysostom. In a central disc shows Christ as an angel, a composition known as “Blessed Sience”. Two saints occupy the kovcheg. There are no inscriptions but the one on the left is probably St ¬†Onuphruis.
