This Quadri-Partite icon has the Crucifixion in the centre. The form of the Cross creates four sections in which other typologies are included: the Virgin of Kazan (top-left); St Nicholas (top-right); St Demetrios on a red horse (bottom-left); and St George on a white horse slaying the dragon (bottom-right).
