Description

Mother of God Sweet Kissing a unique work of Byzantine art!

The face of Mother of God Sweet Kissing is always close to the face of her child. Christ is nestling frightened inside her arms. She is wearing a green tunic and a maphorion, a color that is friendly to the human nature. Christ is dressed in a green – orange sleeved tunic and in a brilliant himation.

His look turns to Virgin Mary while she turns her look to Jesus. The originality of this image lies on the fact that it is one of the few icons that survived from the iconoclasm and were miraculously transferred to Mount Athos. This unique work of Byzantine art has been crafted with the utmost fidelity on canvas and engraved wood, with a gold background and has been coated with pure beeswax.
