Piety of the Orthodox Church is expressed in the upper panel showing high-ranking members of the church gathered together for the 'Exaltation of the Holy Cross'. The reason for such rejoicing is revealed below, in the upper left panel we see Jesus greeting His disciples following His Resurrection. This is followed by another miraculous vision of Christ ascending to Heaven on a cloud surrounded by radiating light as His awestruck followers watch from below. The Dormition or 'falling asleep' of the Virgin Mary is next, representing the transition between earthly death and spiritual afterlife. Then comes the charming 'Hospitality of Abraham' when God appeared in the form of three angels and the kindly Abraham offered them food and drink. Such scenes gave inspiration to the faithful who carried such icons on their travels. - (PF.5211)
