Beautiful icon "Three-Handed Virgin (Virgin Mary, Madonna) and Jesus Christ" - One of the holiest icons in Eastern Orthodoxy, located in Troyan Monastery, Bulgaria. Also famous as a miracle creating icon.
The history of the imagery behind this Icon of the Three-handed Theotokos is closely connected with the life of John of Damascus who put a lot of efforts into defending icons during the time of the iconoclasm. In order to get rid of such a dangerous defender he was belied and as a sign of punishment for alleged treason he was subjected to cutting off of his right hand. For the whole night John of Damascus fervently prayed before the icon of the Theotokos for the healing of his hand with which he had ardently defended holy icons in his letters. His plea was heard and his hand healed. As a token of gratitude he attached a silver right hand to the icon of the Theotokos before which he had been praying. The icon is known for its miraculous healings.

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE:
I painted the icon on a wooden panel with a stucco canvas on top with tempera and gold leaf. The image is 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. The display easel is not included but can be added upon request, message me for details!

The size of the icon is approx 5" by 4" (12x10 cm) and approx 1" deep

This icon is ready to ship. All icons ship via registered air mail with tracking available.
