Three-Panel Icon with the "Deesis"

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description These three icons form a group. In the center, Christ is represented as the Just Judge, surrounded by seraphim, archangels, and the apostles Peter and Paul. The Virgin and John the Baptist, accompanied by saints, turn toward him with their hands raised in prayer. Each panel is decorated with a gilded silver cover. Hung on the wall, small panels like these were used for prayer at home or in monastic cells.
