Икона - Святой Иоанн Предтеча, Ангел пустыни с житием

The icon depicts Saint John the Forerunner in the iconography of "the Angel of the Desert". Saint John the Forerunner is depicted standing in the image of an Angel with wavy hair and wings, holding in his left hand a chalice with a Christ-Child and a scroll with the beginning of verse from Matthew 3:2 "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." St. John is depicted as an "earthly Angel" and a "heavenly man" according to the hymnography of the Church for his feast. His wings symbolize his Angelic pure manner of life. He is surrounded by four vignettes depicting scenes of his birth, encountering an angel, beheading, and translation of his severed head.
