  • Description : The Transfiguration is one of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels. Jesus is depicted full length, centrally located standing on the barren top of mount Thavor. Miraculously he becomes radiant, shinning with bright rays of light all over him. He is wearing a white chiton surrounded by triple mandorla’s with emanating rays and a superimposed star. He is wearing a gold halo in his head. He is blessing with his right hand while holding a scroll with his left. He is flanked by the full length standing figures of: Moses holding the book of Commands with his both arms on the left side of the icon, and Prophet Elias on the right side leaning his head towards Him.
    At the lower part of the image three disciples of Christ, named Peter, Ioannis (John) and Iakovos (Jacob) are depicted either sprawling, writhe, in sleep or in terror.
