Description

Icon depicting Virgin Mary Eleousa that has been crafted on naturally aged wood

A beautiful icon with Virgin Mary Eleousa. According to tradition the original icon was found in Thessalia, at the village Xyniada, by a child who saw Theotokos. Virgin Mary appeared at the 8 year old boy by the name Athanasius Syros, while he was playing. She told the little boy that he had pure heart and She also told him how to find Her icon.

The boy told that to the villagers and to his parents but none of them believed him. Years later an excavating machine came to Xyniada in order to open the streets of the village, but during the excavations they found under the ground the icon of the Virgin Mary. After that the villagers apologized to the children but most of all to Virgin Mary because they didn’t believed to Her appearance and Her words. At the place the icon was found the villagers built a church dedicated to Virgin Mary Eleousa.

The face of Virgin Mary Eleousa is close to the face of her child. Christ is nestling frightened inside her arms. She is wearing a purple tunic while Christ is dressed in a white tunic and in a brilliant himation. His look turns to Virgin Mary while She turns her look to Jesus.
