That must be the Theotokos in the thing the angel is holding on the left. Is that St. Philip on the right?
Nah, that there is the Lord Jesus Christ.

That’s good to know!  I just asked the icon and heard a voice identify itself, but your method is much easier.

^^ Yeah, many of Lemko icons were painted by local artists, who had good intentions, but not always good skills. Anyway, there are many nice Lemko icons.

Indeed, there are many talented Lemko painters in general; Andy Warhol was a Lemko and a practicing Ruthenian Catholic until his death.

this icon is from the POC its a Lemko icon

Part of me really likes this, part of me really doesn't.

At the very least, it's really visually interesting.
