St. Mary of Egypt's Last Communion

Church of St Nicholas, Mramorec, Republic of Macedonia

St. Zosimus gives communion to St. Mary of Egypt, who wears the cloak he had given her the previous year. As is common in Orthodox images of St. Mary, her hair is short and white, and her cloak and arm are arranged so as to suggest her former nakedness without betraying modesty. The artist has declined to represent the sacred host.
