The language is Church Slavonic but the picture is not clear enough to read the background text.

What is the origin of the icon?  Made for a special occasion to celebrate some event for example?

Looks modern.

For me it looks like some Old-believers stuff.

An interesting comment.  Please explain why you think it is Old Believer?  Is it because of the lack of spaces between the words in Church Slavonic?  I thought the orthography of the Church Slavonic alphabet looked a bit too modern to be Old Believer?  Maybe a "fake" antique?

- as you mentioned, lack of spaces
- red letters on black background - I think it's common for them
- such a way of depicting a Cross - putting it in frames

I don't have any proofs that it is real from Old-believer tradition, and not f.e. made by Great Schema Monk instead. These features colligates to me with an Old -believer culture. That's all. Maybe Hopeful Faithful should look into it?
