The classical form and artistic image of the Reliquary cross with the icons of the Lord Almighty on the obverse and the Mother of God Oranta on the reverse calls us to Ancient Byzantium. Byzantine are the technique of execution and the general iconographic solution. The image of the Lord Almighty is the oldest surviving icon of Jesus Christ. The Lord is represented in growth with a blessing right hand and a book in his left hand, the binding of which is marked with a cross.The symbolic meaning of the book is ambiguous, but there are two main meanings: this is the Book of Life, that is, the image of the whole world created by God, and the code of laws (commandments) by which this world should live.
