A strangely realistic icon of St. Alexei, Metropolitan of Moscow.

In what way?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

In what way?

The wrinkles on the eyebrows - the eyes, the realistic but slightly too long fingers.
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

Nastasya, Nastasya, be
patient and do not cry:
Not every happiness
Comes in the clothing of fortune.

St. Avvakum, pray for us!

St. Ambrose, pray for us!

It doesn't seem realistic.

Depicting the Word of God, preincarnational Jesus I suppose.

The lack of a cross halo probably makes it not only uncanonical but maybe heretical.
“God,”
The words rumbled:
“There is much suffering,
But the church is alive. "

 “How long, Archpriest, are we to suffer thus?” I answered: “Until our very death, Markovna!” And she replied, with a sigh: “So be it, Petrovich, let us plod on.” - Life of Avvakum by Himself

Nastasya, Nastasya, be
patient and do not cry:

St. Ambrose, pray for us!

A bit strange, at least for Georgians (and it's Georgian icon of st. Gregory Peradze)

^^I'd seen it before and if I recall correctly, it's just a piece of something bigger. But I may be wrong.
