This beautiful, triptych wooden icon consists of a threefold panel, which can be displayed open or closed—the colorful scenes reveal the Virgin Mary holding Jesus on her lap with the two angels by her side. Below the illustration shows, the legend of Saint George and the Dragon. The story is the saint taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices; the saint thereby rescues the princess chosen as the next offering. The princess is likely is the one who is standing by the tree.
The other angels, most likely, are Archangel Michael with his sword.
Overall the icon is in good condition. There is no noticeable damage. However, it is a handmade item as such there are some imperfection.

Welcome to koolDecor, your number one source for traditional Ethiopian home decorations and fashion accessories.
Mekdes Hagos, the founder and owner of koolDecor, began her professional life in the interior architecture field and worked for many years in the business. On a trip to Ethiopia in 2007, she met a textile weaver who introduced her to the woven fabrics of the country. Mekdes fell in love with the materials and wanted to incorporate the designs in the creation of something new. A few years later, through a partnership with Ethiopian textile weavers, koolDecor was established. Since then, Mekdes has collaborated with a wide range of artisans.
