This embroidered Winding-Sheet (Greek: Επιτάφιον, Epitaphion – Slavonic: Плащаница, Plashchanitsa) was part of the original shipment of supplies to St. Nicholas in 1893.  It was used annually from the construction of the building until 2011 when it was temporarily retired until funds could raised to stabilize and conserve this delicate piece for generations to come.

If you would like to contribute to the conservation efforts, please contact us.
