A full-length depiction of a male figure. He is located to the right of the apse window.
Saint James, the Bishop of Nisibis, was, according to Armenian tradition, a cousin of Saint Gregory the Illuminator. James is said to have travelled through the province of Vaspurakan on his way to Nisibis and, at a location on the southern shores of Lake Van, he miraculously caused a spring to burst forth. A monastery (called Entzak'iar), which was dedicated to him and containing his relics, was later erected on the site of this miracle.
This figure was traditionally said to be that of the apostle Saint Bartholomew (matching the apostle Saint Thaddeus on the opposite side of the window). However, the Bishop's robes that he is wearing made that identification questionable.
