An antique serigraph with the representation of Jesus Christ Pantocrator, one of the most common religious images of Orthodox Christianity. The icon depicts Christ with a somewhat melancholy, with the right hand raised in blessing while holding a gospel with his left one. Pantocrator usually translated as «almighty» or «all-powerful». The icon of Christ Pantocrator appears in the dome of most Orthodox Churches. According to Orthodox tradition the highest point of the Church is reserved for Jesus Christ. His Mother and all the other saints, angels and prophets are depicted on the walls immediately below Pantocrator. The iconographic type of Christ Pantocrator, the «all-powerful», is very frequent in later Byzantine art.
