Fresco of the Life of Saint Catherine of Alexandria by the same artist
(Bottom left is obviously Theotokos and Child, not sure who the bottom right and center are
- bottom right seems to be Mary Magdalene, and maybe Pope Linus due to the red?)

One of the few crucifixes I'd like to see in an Orthodox church.

Despite being pre-schism, I don't know if you could consider them "icons" just from how visually intense they are, despite how pretty they are.

Still found worth posting though.

It's good to know that if a British Orthodox church were to exist this artstyle would be acceptable.

Gothic Ecce Homo painted in the mid-XVI century in Portugal, oil on wood

Beautiful. Showing Christ as God and Man at the same time. Realist and mysterious at the same time.

Having a hard time interpreting this one. Is the kneeling man with the staff supposed to be the one who offered Him gall and vinegar or is he a depiction of the patron who commissioned the sculpture? I'm guessing by the crozier in his hand, that the pointing man is not St. John the Baptist (or is he?).

What do the letter's spell out?
For me it's IHS but I'm not sure.
Yeah, that was my thought, too. But it's written very strangely written if so.
The Cross throws the lettering off.
Too bad they didn’t opt for the JW torture stake.
