Icons of Mary with Christ child symbolize the great mother to child affection and love, they are particularly treasured and loved in the Christian world. 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 red shawl of fine lightweight wool with gold trim. 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.

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE:
This icon is created in the canon of orthodox icons painting.
I painted the icon on a wooden panel with stucco canvas. I used tempera for the figures and a gold leaf for the background with oxydyzed effect on the corners and also gold leaf for the halos of Mary and Christ. 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 are stained in darker tone. There is metal ring on top for easy hanging.

The size of the icon is 6.7" by 8" (17x20 cm) and 2/3" deep(1.7cm)

This icon is made to order item, please allow up to a week prior to shipping. All icons ship via registered air mail with tracking available.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
