Icon of Saint Figure

An icon came in to the studio. We believe it be 200-300 years old, which is hinted at by its condition and the materials used, but so far it’s providing more questions than answers. What’s it’s origin? Who’s the figure? What’s written on the front, in the two flat hexagon shapes, and what language is it? The signature on the back, what exactly does it say? Is it authentic? The scratched letters on the back, what do you mean, and are they authentic? The overall style, much simpler than most icons, what can we learn from that?

Stay tuned as we research our way through this.
