In this icon Christ is shown seated on a throne with his feet on a footstool. The Savior is encircled by Saraphim and Cherubim. He appears above all the Creator and Lord of the whole universe. It reflects the combined visions of Isaiah 66:1 "... with heaven my throne and earth my footstool", and Ezekiels' vision of the "chariot of God," and the "four living creatures"--man, lion, ox and eagle-- relating to the four evangelists.
Christ the Lord holds the open book of the Gospel and raises his hand in blessing.
