This Russian icon depicts the Lord on the Cross, outside the city of Jerusalem, as the Gospel describes. Below the Cross are the Virgin Mary, St. John, the Myrrhbearers, and St. Longinus the Centurion.
Several saints are also depicted on the borders.

I am very happy with this icon. I have bought it for my niece who is getting married this spring. It will be a very inspirational Lenten icon and will serve as a crucifix the rest of the year. I would just like to know who the six figures are on the sides of the icon. If someone could get in touch with me and tell me that information that would be great to pass on to my niece and her husband to be. Thank you so much . I have enjoyed purchasing from you and will continue to do so.
