This 19th century Russian icon of the Moscow school features Christ in the center as Emmanuel and Word of God. Above the center is the Old Testament Trinity, or Hospitality of Abraham, and above this, Christ depicted as Almighty God. On either side, angels hold the sun and the moon, which represent His dominion over all creation.
In the lower half, there are three depictions of Christ and the Cross. On the left side, Christ hangs on the Cross overlooking Jerusalem, as the Gospel describes. In the middle, the Theotokos weeps for her Son as He is taken down from the Cross and buried in the tomb. In the lower left corner, Christ is depicted as a conquering King as He enters into Hades, where the demons recoil in fear. On the right side, a skeleton riding a lion represents Death, who holds the souls of the departed captive. But Christ he King is about to set them free by His Resurrection.
