This particular icon is known as The Virgin of Vladimir. It was originally a gift from the Byzantine empire and was rumored to have been painted by Saint Luke. Also known as "the Mother of Tenderness" or "Eleusa". Beautiful representation of motherhood and most tender embrace of a child.

SIZE: 3 x 3 1/2 inches (7x9cm)

THE TECHNIQUE:
Painted on wood panel with tempera and gold leaf on stucco canvas. It is varnished with couple of layers to assure a long lasting image and to make it easy and safe to clean it from dust. The back is varnished with darker tone semi transparent varnish for a nice finish. There is a hole on the back for hanging on a wall. Or, you can pick to display it on a mini easel (see the drop down menu for options)
