Christ the Holy Silence as an angel is depicted in Byzantine court dress. The design is based on an image from a 14th century manuscript Sound in St. Catherine's Monastery in Sinai. This version of Christ is based on scripture (Isaiah 42:1-2): "He will bring justice to the nations. He will not cry out or shout, or make his voice heard in the street."
