Description

Engraved Serigraph with Virgin Mary Amolyntos

An excellent engraved serigraph with the representation of Virgin Mary Amolyntos. That image is associated with the suffering and death by crucifixion of Jesus. The Mother of Jesus is commonly called as the Virgin Mary, in accordance with the belief that she conceived Jesus miraculously. In Greek Orthodox tradition the name Panagia the Amolyntos means the All-Holy Pure One and She is also called Panagia tou Pathous, meaning All-Holy One of the Passion. The name of Virgin Mary Amolyntos derives from the hymn of the Compline composed by monk Paulos. At this icon Jesus Christ is depicted looking towards the angels who are illustrated above Virgin Mary holding the symbols of Passion, the Cross, the Spear and the Sponge.
