In the centre is the resurrection from the grave and the descent into the underworld (the realm of the dead). Christ on the crushed gates of the realm of the dead, tears Adam and Eve out of the maw of death and with them the righteous of the Old Testament. Bottom right: Jesus and Peter at the Sea of Galilee.
From left to right the feasts:
Poliment-gilded background with engraved and painted ornaments. Very beautiful, fine miniature painting with very fine gold painting on the robes (assist). Very nice icon from the painter’s village of Palech.
