CENTRAL PANEL: CHRIST’S DECENT INTO HELL. Christ standing triumphantly on the Cross is shown pulling our fore-father Adam from the grave (pictured as a cave) while Eve grasps at His foot. Surrounding them are Old Testament female heroines, kings and prophets. The text in Slavonic at the top of the icon reads: “The Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
LEFT PANEL: Shows angels binding Satan in chains at his defeat when Christ descended into Hades.
RIGHT PANEL: Shows an angel welcoming Dismas the Good Thief into paradise. Note tree between them representing the “tree” on which Christ was crucified.
