Description

Engraved Serigraph with Virgin Mary Glykofilousa

An engraved serigraph with Virgin Mary Glykofilousa. It is Known that the original icon of Virgin Mary Glykofilousa was property of Victoria, wife of the senator Symeon, who, in order to save it threw it into the sea. The icon, floating upright on the waves, reached the arsanas of the Monastery of Philotheou, where it was received with great honour and rejoicing by the fathers of the Monastery. At the point on the shore where they placed the icon, holy water gushed out. The face of Virgin Mary Sweet Kissing (Glykofilousa) is always close to the face of her child. Christ is nesting inside her arms. His look turns to Virgin Mary while She turns her look to Jesus. Virgin Mary is Known by many different epithets that has been given to Her through the history of Orthodox Church.

Engraved Serigraph: Characteristics

A beautiful engraved serigraph on natural wood. Serigraph is a common technique in iconography and as a result is being taught and used in many iconography workshops including the ones at Mount Athos. At iconographies that are made with this particular technique monks are using modern and traditional methods, which means that the iconographer creates a part of the icon by hand and with less participation of technology.

This icon is crafted with excellent materials on natural wood so it remains intact and with bright colours. The iconographer uses shiny background in gold colour highlighting the forms and the characteristics of the saints and giving visually a polished type effect. Engraved icons incorporates a special technique something that gives the icon an excellent aesthetic style.
