Several pieces of embroidery in the monastery treasury can be dated to the last decades of the 14th and first decades of the 15th century. It is impossible to establish a direct connection between any icon or work of embroidery from the Lazarevich period and any individual member of the family, but such a connection cannot be discounted either.


Epitaphios with the Lametition, from the 15th century. The embroidery was the work of a certain Siropul, and commisioned by a certain John (Jovan). It is beleived to have been kept in the monastery of Lesnovo before reaching Chilandar.
