Russian Icon - Our Savior of Smolensk

The Savior of Smolensk is the iconographic type of Jesus Christ in which he is represented as the Pantocrator – in a frontal position, with his right hand raised in a blessing gesture and his right hand holding a Gospel book. To either side of Him, are the Virgin Mary and St. John the Baptist; kneeling in prayer at His feet, are St. Sergius of Radonezh and the Venerable Barlaam of Khutyn. In the upper part of the icon, to the right and left of Christ, are angels with the instruments of passion.
