Helena Dąbczańska is a famous Lviv collector of incunabula, engravings, books, drawings, fabrics and furniture; the owner of a private museum organized in her own villa and the hostess on artistic Sunday mornings for representatives of the Lviv elite at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. And at the same time, a great enthusiast of the Hutsul region. Her collection includes fragments of costumes, textiles, jewellery, ceramics, utility items, but the majority are items related to the art and liturgy of the Orthodox church: fragments of iconostasis, candlesticks, crosses and icons. Often rescued from destruction, parts of the decor were purchased from Ukrainian churches, those that were considered unnecessary and were to be replaced with new ones. In the years 1911—1935, she donated over 400 objects to the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków — a beautiful and unique collection of folk art and crafts from the Hutsul and Pokut region.
In the centre of the painting there is a representation of Christ on the cross, which basically divides the painting into two parts. The Saviour is depicted after death, with a slightly bent silhouette, while the body is strikingly emphasized with traces of torture and bloodshed. In the left part of the painting there is a full-figure representation of the Mother of God with Child turned to the right. In the left part of the painting, there is St. Nicholas in the costume of an Eastern bishop. The figures are shown against a uniform, blue background, filled with a floral twig plant. The middle of the painting, on the right side of the vertical post of the cross bears an inscription: “Dnia/23/Augusty/Rolin/1815”.
