Icons of Mary and Christ Child are particularly treasured and beloved. Next to her is child Jesus.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-purple shawl of fine lightweight wool with gold trim and fringes. The "Stars of Perfection" on her head and shoulders are symbolic of her purity.
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.

ABOUT THE TECHNIQUE:
The icon is painted on a wooden panel with a stucco(plastered) canvas on top. The wood panel is a part of a vintage chest that I re-worked into a panel for this icon. I used water based paint (tempera) for the figures and a gold leaf for the halos of the saints.. The image is sealed with a couple of transparent varnish layers and this allows the icon to be cleaned from dust easily. The back and the sides of the icon is stained in darker tone.

The size of the icon is 15" by 13" (39x34 cm) and about an inch deep at the thickest parts of the panel (2.4cm)

All icons are shipped via registered mail with tracking info available for each package.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
Thank you!
