This small triptych composed of panels set in hinged brass frames combines three types of scene. The central panel contains an extended Deesis (Intercession) with Christ flanked by (in descending order) Saints Peter and Paul, two angels, the Virgin and St John the Baptist and two monks. The left panel depicts two military saints, St Demetrios spearing a Roman emperor (Diocletian or Julian), and St George spearing a serpent. The right panel portrays two bishops, two male saints and one female saint all turning towards the Deesis. The figures are inscribed in Slavonic.
