Deisis with Saints Nicholas and Patrick

 Deisis. Acrylic and gold on birch panels. 18x12 inches (45x30cm)

I recently finished this Deisis with Saints Nicholas and Patrick. Deisis (Greek: δέησις, "prayer" or "supplication") is a traditional depiction in Byzantine iconography of Christ Pantocrator enthroned, flanked by the Theotokos and St. John the Baptist in prayer. Often, other saints are featured in prayer to Christ.
