Description

The worship and respect towards Virgin Mary by people, didn’t only give her a great number of different names but also defined her iconographic presentation. The main iconographic type came from the ancient type of the Mother holding her newborn infant in her arms.

This unique work of Byzantine art has been crafted with the method of the quality silk-scren printing in the hagiography workshop of father Peukis and has been finished by hand. It illustrates Virgin Mary in a gold background, hugging the infant Christ, who is holding with his left arm the sphere of the world while blessing with his right arm.

The halos have been elaborately decorated while on the upper corners of the icon, two angels have been painted in a reverential posture. Christ and Virgin Mary appear standing still. At the same time, all faces seem to have their own rhythm, stating an iternal motion.
