Queen of Heaven
The creator of the synthesis, Nectarios Nestos, by faithfully following the technique of artificial aging as it was taught to him on Mount Athos, created the multicolored lithograph.
Queen of Heaven – Panagia Platytera (Greek: Πλατυτέρα; “wider” or “more spacious”) is an icon of Virgin Mary, facing the viewer directly and with the image of Christ as a child in front of her chest, also facing the viewer directly.
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 7:14: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel.” Such an image is often placed in the apse above the altar.
The creator of the synthesis, Nectarios Nestos, by faithfully following the technique of icon painting and artificial aging as it was taught to him on Mount Athos, created the handmade details of this multicolored lithograph.
