The upper tier of the iconostasis—the Prophets—includes ten icons, presenting the Old Testament Prophets with the scrolls in their hands, facing the icon of Our Lady of the Sign, which is the compositional centre of the tier.

A half-length type of painting, chosen by the icon painter, allowed enlarging the dimensions of the figures, thus visually bringing them nearer so we can see the images in details. Contrast colours give a special expression and decorative effect to the icons.
