Description

Virgin Mary Sweet Kissing a collectible icon of the famous Greek hagiographer, Father Pefkis!

The icon Virgin Mary Sweet Kissing, with the child’s foot naked, was established by the hagiographic laboratories.

The face of the Sweet kissing Mother of God is always close to the face of her child that is nestling frightened inside her arms. She is wearing her mourning cloak, while Christ is dressed in a grey-green sleeved tunic and in a brilliant himation.

His look turns to Virgin Mary while She turns her look to Jesus.

The originality of this image lies on the fact that it is one of the icons that survived from the iconoclasm and was miraculously transferred to Mount Athos.

This unique work of Byzantine art was crafted with the utmost fidelity on canvas and wood, with a silver 925o piece and has been coated with pure beeswax.
