A classical iconographic presentation of Deesis - Christ in the middle, Theotokos on his left and St. John the Baptist - on his right side, both of them in intercession, praying poses towards Christ on the Judgement Day. Down on the icon there are remainders from a donors inscription and a date - year 1577. Most probably the icon is the central part of an iconostasis frieze of Apostles.
