The Trifun worshipers of Livanj Jerusalem of 1871 (140 x 104 cm), made with the technique of tempera on canvas, represents a type of icons called Jerusalem. They bear the central portrayal of the Church of Christ's Tomb in Jerusalem and other places in the Holy Land, which pilgrims - the Hajj - visited on their pilgrimage route. The most prominent role is played by the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, as well as the portrayal of the place where Christ's Suffering, Death, and Resurrection are believed to have taken place. The interior of the Holy Sepulcher Church in Jerusalem is filled with performances related to Christ and the religious ceremonies that take place in it - the arrival of the patriarch, the lithium, and the rite of silence of St. Fire. Jerusalem is a witness to the visual culture and spiritual aspirations of Orthodox Christians in the late Ottoman Empire.
