This icon is a modern one by Monk Michael from Mount Athos. The Virgin Mary and St. John flank the Cross as they look on with both wonder at such a mystery and pain at such an agonizing passion and death. The other Myrrh-Bearing women stand by the Virgin, while the centurion Longinus on the right, who later became a Christian Saint and Martyr, looks up with amazement.
