Икона - Святой Николай Угодник (Чудотворец)

Saint Nicholas is depicted frontally half-figured wearing bishop’s clothes, blessing with his right hand and holding open Gospels with his left one showing inscription from Luke 6:17 “At that time Jesus stood on the plain, [and a multitude of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases]”. Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary offering a bishop’s omofor, both in Heavens are shown behind him. He is flanked by St. Prophet Naum and St. Reverent Alexander.

Saint Nicholas of Myra (270 - 343), was a historic 4th-century Saint and Greek Bishop of Myra. Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as Nikolas the Wonderworker. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus. His reputation evolved among the faithful, as was common for early Christian saints.
