The icon THE ASCENSION OF CHRIST is from the same festal range with THE DORMITION OF THE VIRGIN (Cat. № 1.2007) and probably these two icons are completed by the same master. Above the heads of the Apostles and the Theotokos is depicted Christ in ascension. The disc, in which Christ is depicted, is carried from both sides by two Angels.
