Virgin Mary of Seven Swords

The extremely rare representation of Virgin Mary of Sorrows or Seven Swords. At this icon we have Virgin Mary with three swords at the one  shoulder and four at the other. This representation symbolizes Her great sorrow for losing Her only son. In russian traditional stories amulets or icons with Virgin Mary of Sorrows are placed in the entrance of a house to protect it from illness, jealousy and evil eye. The icon is related to the prophecy of Saint Simeon the theologian recorded by the evangelist Luke «a sword will go through your heart…» (Luke 2,35). This passage refers to the pain that Virgin Mary would feel at the time of separation from her beloved Son, when He would be led to the death of the Cross in front of her eyes. The Virgin Mary of Sorrows- Seven Swords is also known as the «prophecy of Simeon».
