Our Lady is depicted waist-length. This icon is a duplication of the icon of the Mother of God, on which the Saviour crucified on the Cross is depicted close to Our Lady together with the newly canonized martyrs of Omsk. But unlike the iconographic version of Our Lady of Okhtyrka, the Virgin Mary’s hands are not folded in a prayer. With Her left hand Our Lady presses a white headkerchief to her face. On the raised flat borders of the icon panel are full-length figures of the Saints-St.Silvester, St.John, St.Michael and St. Alexander.
