This unique hagiography of Virgin Mary Ierosolymitissa has been crafted with the lithographic process and has been placed on a wood derivative. It was created by monks who live at the Holy Cell of St. George which belongs to the Skete of Saint Anne and is located on Mount Athos.
The Fathers took special care of the icon of Virgin Mary by painting the wood derivative with black color and overlaying the lithography with glossy varnish in order to remain unchanged over time. The entire form of Virgin Mary is full of symbolisms and doctrinal teachings. Her large eyes see through the heart while her thin nose reveals true nobility and freedom from the stench of the world.
Her beauty is eternal because it is spiritual. This unique work of Byzantine art is a copy of the icon of Panagia Ierosolymitissa, which according to tradition was not made by the hand of man. The Most Holy Lady of Jerusalem is a very popular icon of Virgin Mary because it overlooks the empty tomb of the Most Holy Theotokos at the Sepulcher of the Mother of God in Gethseman-blessing the numerous pilgrims visiting the Holy Land of Jerusalem.
The artwork is a genuine monastic product of Mt Athos (Agion Oros).
