This small triptych shows images of the mother of God and selected saints. It is finely executed on a gold ground.

Sometimes people ask about the dark skin of saints. It is merely a tradition that developed in Russia and became a convention, partly because of the darkening of icons over the years and the continual recopying from such darkened images.
