The icons of Mary and Christ pressing his cheek to hers are known as "the Mother of Tenderness" or "Eleusa"
Mary holds the Christ-Child close accentuating the maternal relationship with her son. The maphorion encircles her head. It has a border and is with ornamented stars, one over the forehead and the shoulders-signs of her virginity.
Christ is a baby in size only for he is “the Word”. His face reflects the concern and the wisdom of God. Christ presses His face affectionately against his mother’s cheek and his arms encircle her neck in tenderness and consolation. It is as if they share together all that is to come.
