St. Elijah is shown sitting in a chariot. His right hand holds the garment he will give Elijah help him cross the deep river and his left - a scroll and the reins of the four small horses harnessed to the chariot. Below there is a mountainous landscape with a river and to the left is the prophet’s disciple - Elisee, his arms raised in prayer for help. The pink, gold and ochre colors of the icon contribute to the splendid decorative harmony.
