Description

Engraved Serigraph with Virgin Mary Glykofilousa

An image with the Virgin Mary Glykofilousa, which is depicted holding the little Christ lovingly in her arms. It is Known, according to tradition, 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 so no one could find it and destroy it. 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 and Christ is nesting inside her arms.
