Saint Juliana is represented in a frontal pose attired in green clothes holding a cross in her right hand. The right and the left borders of the icon still show waist-length depictions of the two saints – John the Baptist (?) and unknown martyress and also parts of the inscription made of the white mineral pigment on the red edging of the upper border. Perhaps the inscription might have contained information on how the icon was painted and the saints represented on the borders were the patrons of those who had ordered this icon.
