Hagiography Virgin Mary Holding Baby Jesus – Composition

The Mother of God is wearing a green tunic, a reticulum of the same color and a bright red maphorion with a triangular opening on the cleavage area. The chevron on her right shoulder is adorned with fringes. Virgin Mary is illustrated in bust, with both her body and head leaning towards Christ, while holding him with her left arm.

Christ is dressed in a white tunic and orange clothing. He is blessing, with his right hand while holding a scroll with his left one. On the conical neck, the head of Christ makes a slight movement while gazing at the viewer. On the upper left and right side of Virgin Mary’s halo, and on the beautiful golden font, the inscription «ΜΡΘΥ» with capital Greek letters can be found.
