Abstract. The article deals with the iconography of Christ on the icons of iconostases by the authors of the masters of the church art center in the town of Rybotychi (Nadsisnnia, now Poland), which were active in the 1670—1760’s. It was traced that these masters, in general, adhered to the established in the XVII cent. in the Ukrainian iconostases traditions of reflection the image of the Savior, but in their works, we also see local features of iconography. It is noted that the craftsmen from Rybotychi were among the first to actively develop the image of Christ the Bishop in the rank of Prayer, which is known for the works of the late 1680s.
