Description

This specific piece of byzantine art is a unique and handmade copy of Byzantine icon made at the Holy cell of the Assumption of Virgin Mary on Mount Athos. It is wood crafted and has a gold background that consists of 24K genuine gold leaf.

It is the most popular byzantine art of Virgin Mary for the Russian people, a sacred icon that protects the traditional Russian family and with which the engagements in Russia are blessed. It illustrates the venerable face of Virgin Mary turning tenderly to her Son, who is standing upright and blessing.

With the traditional iconographic style, the Athonite monk illuminates key persons and shades circumferentially, close to the intense outline of the face. The light does not come from an external source but the divine people themselves illuminate the creation. This is a handmade hagiografy of Virgin Mary made at Mt Athos.
