This three-panel folding icon—a triptych—is wrought from bronze and enamel. The three panels contain religious images: the central panel portrays Christ, while the flanking panels portray saints. The figures, articulated in bronze relief, are highly stylised in manner; moreover, the details of their surroundings are accented with black and white enamel, which has been filled into cells created by shallow bronze relief. The work folds flat to reveal an outer surface cast to mimic the texture of wood.
