The Christ is presented in half-length blessing with his right hand and holding an open Gospel Book in his left hand. The blessing is the traditional Eastern
Byzantine manner of blessing with the thumb and the next two fingers pointing up and the last two fingers pointing down.
On either side of Christ's are an "IC" and "XC" which are the beginning Greek letters for "Jesus Christ
Conquers." In the nimbus (halo) you find three Greek letters, which look like "W O N" and form the Greek word that translates to "There is only One God."
The text in Slavonic on the open Gospel Book is "A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another..."
