The Royal Deesis Icon

The Royal Deesis icon from the Assumption Cathedral in Moscow’s Kremlin, painted by the unknown master in the 14th century. The icon depicts Jesus Christ sitting on the throne, whose iconography combines elements of Christ the King and Christ the Great Archbishop images, with the Mother of God in royal robes to the left and John the Baptist to the right. Jesus Christ holds the Gospel and a stick in His one hand and blesses with His other hand.
