Description

The icon presented, with the child’s foot naked, was established by the hagiographic laboratories. The face of the Sweet kissing Mother of God is always close to the face of her child that is nestling frightened inside her arms. She is wearing her mourning cloak, while Christ is dressed in a blue-gray sleeved tunic and in a brilliant himation. His look turns to Virgin Mary while She turns her look to Jesus.
