17-century Fine Russian Icon - Saints Zosima and Sabbatius, Founders of the Solovetsky Monastery in silver basma frame

Saints Zosima and Sabbatius, highly venerated Orthodox monastic saints, were founders of the Solovetsky Monastery, a fortified monastery located on the Solovetsky Islands in the White Sea in northern Russia. The Saints are depicted full-figured, facing each other, praying to Christ in the heavens above. St. Zosima is depicted on the left holding a scroll with a traditional text "Do not grieve, brethren, but by this understand, if the essence of my deeds before God will be pleasing, then our monastery will not fail."
