Information about author
Against a stylised mountain landscape, an older man, half lying on his right side, with his head turned to the left and leaning on his right elbow, moves crosswise on a book. The man has a long grey beard, an elongated ascetic face and closed eyes. Clothing is brownish-brown in colour. At the top right is a cut tree with a twig branch. Along the top edge is a narrow strip of grey sky. The image is executed in a neo-Byzantine manner, using lines-movements, and lines reminiscent of the assize in the folds of clothing in ancient iconography, their rhythm is repeated in the outlines of the rocks and the saint's clothing.
