Description

The main iconographic type of Virgin Mary stemmed from the age-old type of the Mother of God with the newborn infant in her lap. In the Christian art this specific type, which symbolized the eternal rebirth and continuity of life – the victory over death – acquires a specific theological content.

Working towards this direction, the former student of the Athonite Academy at Mount Athos, Father Pefkis, created this unique artwork, which is entirely handcrafted and has been decorated with 22K gold leaf. The halo was created with the tsoukani technique and was decorated with 23,75K gold.

The entire composition has been crafted on pine wood which has undergone artificial aging. It is a unique and handmade work of Byzantine art which has been coated with pure beeswax in order to remain unchanged over time. This unique work of Byzantine art is readily available from Mount Athos Products Exhibition.
