Lithography with Holy Lady of Mourning

This is a beautiful lithography with the representation of Holy Lady of Mourning crafted by a monk at Mount Athos. The first authentic Holy Lady of Mourning was painted at 1972 at Mount Athos by monk Ioasaf and then it was send at New Olynthos Halkidiki. According to tradition Virgin Mary cured a child and his father built a church at their village. But he couldn’t decide at which icon of Virgin Mary to dedicate this church so Theotokos came at his dream and She told him to go at Mount Athos, find monk Ioasaf and beg him to paint the icon of Holy Lady of Mourning. The man did what the Virgin Mary told him and after that the church was dedicated at this icon.
