The September Menaion

The September Menaion icon painted in the late 19th century in Mstyora, one of the most notable iconographic regions of the Russian Empire. This beautiful icon was once part of a twelve icon complex featuring feasts and saints for every month. It is distinguished by a more detailed iconography of the feasts and an extended number of saints as compared to the similar icons created at that period, which testifies to the fact that it was created by one of the best local iconographers.
