Antique Serigraph with Virgin Mary Eleousa

An antique serigraph with the representation of 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 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 child 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.
