Strangely enough for an Orthodox church, mouflons and hounds are depicted in the triangular space between the Virgin and monk Theophilos. The two mouflons stand in a steep landscape and two hounds are tied to a spear and each is turned to the figure of Theophilos as being their owner. In support of this theory, the short vestments, the striped boots and the opening in front of the tunic were worn by hunters, farmers and soldiers in the West or by Latin people. Therefore, they may indicate that indeed Theophilos was their master. Consequently, the fact that the garments of every monk portrayed in Asinou deviate from the norm, points to the theory that the brotherhood of the monastery had agrarian and hunting activities and was breeding livestock.
