The icon for the month February is divided into five registers, in which the most important saints of the month are represented against a bright bluish green background. The original captions are still in place, making it possible to identify each saint. The icon once belonged to a series of twelve icons that formed an entire calendar year. The Month June icon from the same series as the present icon is in a private collection in Germany (published: E. Haustein-Bartsch and F. Waechter, Mythos Palech, Ikonen und Lackminiaturen, exhibition catalogue Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, December 2010 – February 2011, Cat. No. 13, p. 89, 90).
