An antique serigraph with the representation of Virgin Mary Sweetness of Angels. Virgin Mary looks like She is placed on a throne as She holds small Christ. The adoration and respect for the Virgin Mary gave her a great number of names. It is estimated that Theotokos has about 500 epithets depending on the way She was painted, the place where Her churches and monasteries are or even from traditions. The epithet Sweetness of Angels means that Virgin Mary is the one who brought joy to angels and the whole world when she gave birth to Jesus Christ. In this image, the Virgin Mary embraces Christ, while two angelic figures can be seen from above. The representation of the Most Holy Theotokos is one of the favorite subjects of the iconographers, who in this way show their unlimited faith and love.
