THE POKROV WITH ST. ROMANOS THE MELODIST
RUSSIAN, LATE 18TH CENTURY
The upper register shows the miraculous apparition of the Mother of God in the Church of Vlachernae in Constantinople. The Virgin holding her veil stands in glory and she is surrounded by crowds of saints. Below, St. Romanos the Melodist displays on his open scroll the Christmas Kontakion, whereas to his left St. Andrew 'the fool in Christ' points out to St. Epiphanius the Virgin. The saturated colours of the garments are highlighted with gold and are complimented with the pastels used for the background.
