Icons of Mary are particularly treasured and beloved.They symbolize the great mother to child affection and love.Mary is considered the wisest, most beautiful, most loving, most spiritually evolved of all humans. She is cherished as a source of calm, shelter, serenity,understanding, and mercy.
Mary is depicted as a high-ranking Byzantine lady, modestly wrapped in a reddish shawl of fine lightweight wool with gold trim and fringes. The "Stars of Perfection" on her head and shoulders are symbolic of her purity. Mary's red dress is a symbol of her humanity.
In Orthodox icons, her head is covered and her hair does not show. She holds the Christ Child on her left side, close to her heart.

THE TECHNIQUE:
I painted the icon on a wooden panel with a stucco canvas on top. I used water based paint (tempera) for the figures and Gold Leaf for the background. The image is well sealed with a couple of transparent varnish layers so that the colors are crispier and also to allow the icon to be cleaned from dust easily. The back of the icon is varnished in darker tone. There is a hole o theback for easy hanging. Should you want to display it on an easel- please message me for options to add to your icon.

The size of the icon is 8'' by 10" (20.5x25 cm)and tad under 1" deep(1.8cm)

This icon is ready to ship. All icons ship via registered air mail with tracking available.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
Thank you!
