The icon is a “laconic” version of the festival iconography representing the figure of the Holy Virgin, the Archangel and a heavenly segment. Placed between Gabriel and the Mother of God, the figure of Theodor of Amasea is unique for complementing a composition with an image, not associated with the main scene, not encountered in the festival iconography.
