Triptych Wing with an Angel and Saints

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This panel once formed together with its pair 71.67 the side wings of a triptych icon. Each wing is divided into four registers, showing inward-facing figures that originally drew the viewer's attention to the now missing image in the center. The overall arrangement follows a strict hierarchy, with a pair of angels in the top register followed by the apostles Paul and Peter and by four martyrs holding crosses.
