St. Nicholas the Wonder Worker Saving Sailors (16th century)

60/60 cm        Tempera on wood

The icon is an exact reproduction of the original which is kept at the Dechani Monastery, Macedonia. It depicts one of St. Nicholas's wonders in an extremely original and interesting way. It is a multi-figure composition representing a peculiar triple image of St. Nicholas. The colouring is typical of the Ohrid school - multi-layered and rich. The icon has a powerful emotional impact.
