This is an engraved serigraph with the representation of Our Lady of the Sign or else Platytera. This an icon of Virgin Mary, facing the viewer directly, usually depicted full length with her hands in the «orans» position, and with the image of Christ as a child in front of her chest, also facing the viewer directly. Sometimes the image of Christ is contained within a medallion. Poetically, by containing the Creator of the Universe in her womb, Mary has become «Platytera ton ouranon», which means: «More spacious than the heavens». This type is sometimes called the «Virgin of the Sign» or «Our Lady of the Sign», a reference to Isaiah: «Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel».
