HAGIOGRAPHY VIRGIN MARY IEROSOLYMITISSA – FATHER PEFKIS – ATHONITE ECCLESIASTICAL ACADEMY

The most beloved person of the Orthodoxy after the three persons of the Holy Trinity is Virgin Mary. The beloved form of the Mother of God has taken its final form in our iconographic tradition. The face is calm and serious and has rare nobility, which stems from the characteristic simplicity of the form. Its main features are very delicate and harmonious. The eyes are large and almond-shaped, the nose is thin and straight and the mouth is small and restrained. The hair cannot be seen.

The whole form of Virgin Mary is full of symbolisms and doctrinal teachings. The large eyes see through the heart, the slim nose shows true nobility and freedom from the stench of the world. Her beauty is timeless because it is spiritual.
