This icon is by the hand of an iconographer who wishes to be anonymous, and is used by permission of Come and See Icons.In this icon Christ is above, with angels, being escorted back to His heavenly home. Below stand His Mother Mary, two angels in white, and the faithful disciples. Notice, it is Paul and Peter next to the Theotokos and there are 12 Apostles. This is not how it happened historically, but icons depict events with eternity in mind.
