Origin Russia
Period : early 18th century (vrezki)

The icon of the Crucifixion shows against an elaborate architectural background the interesting iconographic detail of the Good Thief and the Bad Thief to the left and to the right of Christ. The icon of the Kazanskaya Mother of God shows the Virgin only from the shoulders upwards, with large almond-shaped eyes. Christ stands at her left side and is making a sign of blessing. On the Anastasis icon Christ is depicted frontally surrounded by a large mandorla, raising Adam from the grave. Probably the three icons were once part of a triptych, set in a metal case.
