Hagia Sophia Madonna -- Folk Icon

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This image of the Virgin and Christ from the Comnenus mosaic of the Hagia Sophia basilica in Istanbul has been mounted to a block of aspen wood that has been stained a combination of copper and gold, lightly antiqued, and sealed with several layers of water-based varnish. It hangs with two coordinating strands of recycled sari silk ribbon and is embellished with tiger eye, vintage brass, imported copper, Czech glass, Indonesian glass, and Indian glass beads.

If you are not familiar with it, recycled sari silk ribbon is gathered by women’s collectives in India and Nepal as a method of self-sufficiency -- remnants from the sari-making process are collected, torn into strips, sewn together, and exported for creative uses in other parts of the world. I have preserved the ribbons' original condition.

The wood/image is 3 1/2" W x 5" L and hanging, the piece is about 9” from end to end. The piece pictured is the one you will receive. It will come, well protected, by USPS First Class Mail. If you live outside the U.S. please contact me and I will find out the cost of shipping to you.

Returns & exchanges

I would like you to be not only completely satisfied but thoroughly delighted with anything you purchase. I do my best to represent the pieces as accurately as I can both in words and pictures but I know there is no substitute for holding something in your hand and looking at it with your own eyes. If when you receive your order it is not what you have expected, please let me know and I will be happy to accept its return. You would need to cover the return shipping but as long as the piece reaches me in the same condition it reached you, the full amount of your original purchase (including the original shipping charges) will be refunded.

Shipping policies

Your item/s will generally be on their way within 3-5 days of receiving your order -- I don't have internet at home so it may take a few days for me to receive your order but I will send you a 'convo' (Etsy's form of internal messaging) to let you know it is in process and when it will be shipped to you. Your item/s will come by USPS First Class Mail and most shipments will include tracking information. Everything is packaged carefully and will incorporate recycled and recyclable shipping materials whenever possible. To conserve paper, I will only include a packing slip with your order if it is requested.

I apologize to all who live outside of the U.S. for the lack of cross-border/overseas shipping information in my listings -- because of their nature there is too much variability to be able to calculate multiple costs in advance. If you live outside the U.S. please let me know what piece you are interested in and I will find out the cost of shipping it to you.
