Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description On one side of this pectoral cross is an image of the Crucifixion, with the archangels Michael and Gabriel at Christ's head, the skull of Adam at his feet, the Virgin to his right, and St. John to his left. On the other side are ingraved images of Saints Nicholas, Gregory, Basil, John Chrysotom, Stephen, and Sergius of Radonezh (d. 1391). All but Stephen are depicted with the omophoria (stoles) of bishops; Stephan holds a Gospel book and the cross of a martyr. At the top, between the holes for suspension, is an image of the "Mandylion," or Holy Face.
