“Descent from the Cross” icon

A Greek Orthodox priest prays in front of a 14th century “Descent from the Cross” icon which repatriated in Greece November 19, 2008. The painting was stolen from a monastery in northern Greece 30 years ago. In 2002 it was located in London and following a long-lasted trial was returned to Athens.
