Early 19th century,
46.2 x 37 cms,

In this rare image an icon of the Virgin and Child together with St Nicholas is seen in the branches of a tree. An icon of the eight pointed cross is similarly displayed in the adjoining tree. Our icon elaborates the basic iconography with three standing saints: a female martyr, Bishop Ioann and Alexei the Man of God. The icon of the Dormition is inserted in the lower left corner.
