St. Mary of Egypt

Russian icon
18th century

In the lower left we see Zosimus giving his cloak to the saint. In the center we see her wearing that cloak draped from her shoulder. Her chest is like that of a man. The reddish object in her hands appears to be a book.

In the lower right we see Zosimus and the lion about to bury the saint. Other saints whom I have not identified are left and right in the middle of the panel, and Christ at the top raises his right hand in blessing.
