Postcards in Jerusalem

Religious postcards for sale in the Christian quarter of old Jerusalem. I’m not certain, but I’m going to guess that guy in the middle is an Eastern Orthodox priest, maybe named a saint by the church. The narrow streets leading up to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre are full of both Orthodox and Catholic shops, selling crucifixes, little bottles of anointing oil, pictures like this, and many, many long thin candles for visitors to light in the church.
