This beautiful icon shows a saint offering his blessings with his right hand raised.

He wears a gorgeous vestment of gilt silver, like those of cloth worn by high-ranking members of the clergy.

He cradles the Holy Book with his left hand, done in the same relief as the vestment and seeming to be a part of it.

A brilliant glittering halo surrounds his head with radiating beams of light, creating a wonderful contrast with the dark face and beard.

His features are those of a man who has seen much suffering, but whose grace and compassion shine through the human to reflect the Spirit of the Divine. – (PF.4846) Icon Depicting a Saint – PF.4846
