Triptych icon of the Greek area from the 19th century. Tempera painting on a thin recessed panel. The Hodegetria Mother of God (Theotokos) is depicted on the central panel, St. George with the red cloak on the right door, and St. Demetrius with the light blue cloak is on the left door. Both saints hold the Martyrs cross in their hand. The central panel has the elongated and pointy arch, typical of the oldest triptychs; it measures h28x17 cm. Primitive Byzantine style, as in the underground rock paintings of the Balkans and southern Italy (Matera). Restored cosmetic flaws on the frame and on the face of St. Demetrius. The piece shows small shortcomings and touch ups. Stylised figures in bright colours; the characters show elongated bodies and hard facial features. Egg tempera with natural pigments. The back of the closed doors shows the image of the cross on the Calvary and the monograms of Christ the victorious (Nika).
