Hand-painted wooden icon of Christ Pantocrator on a golden background. Christ Pantocrator is a conception of Jesus as the Almighty, or "Ruler of All Things". Jesus is presented in a half length pose, looking directly at the viewer, with his left hand holding the Sacred Word. The Greek letters IC and XC are encircled in red. The IC represents the first and last letters of Jesus, and the letters XC represent the first and last letters of Christ in Greek. Two angels on either side of him, spreading a scroll above his head. Christ’s halo is inscribed with a cross and the Greek letters omicron, omega, nu, spelling "HO ON." In English, translates to "Who Am," the name used for God in Exodus.
