Description

Antique Serigraph with Virgin Mary Paramythia

An antique serigraph with the representation of Virgin Mary Paramythia. According to Orthodox tradition the year 807 AD the abbot of the Holy Monastery of Vatopedi heard the voice of Virgin Mary who was telling him: «Do not open the gates of the monastery today, but climb on the walls and get rid of the pirates».

Surprised the abbot noticed that the face of Virgin Mary came alive while Jesus raised his right hand and tried to cover with it the mouth of Virgin Mary by saying: «No my mother, punish them because they deserve it».  But Virgin Mary grasped the hand of her Son. By turning her head, in order to free her lips, she repeated the same words. This latter formation of the faces remained permanently in the icon. The monks, after being miraculously saved by the pirates, thanked Virgin Mary and they named the icon Paramythia, which means alleviation.
