Description

This icon is of the typical "Tender Mercy" (or Eleusa) type that show Christ Child pressing his left cheek close to the right cheek of his Mother. Here the Theotokos represents the Church of Christ, thereby displaying the fullness of love between God and man, a love that can only be achieved within the bosom of church, the Mother. Love here bridges heaven and earth, the things of God and the things of men; and this unity is expressed in the touching of the faces and the halos. The Theotokos is pensive, as she presses her Son to herself. She envisions His way of the cross, His life full of sufferings.
Icons of Mary are particularly treasured and beloved.They symbolize the great mother to child affection and love.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. Mary's red dress is a symbol of her humanity.
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.

THE TECHNIQUE:
The icon is painted with tempera paint and gold leaf on gallery wrapped canvas. The icon is sealed with couple of layers to assure a long lasting and well preserved image and to make it easy and safe to clean it from dust. The sides of the canvas are painted in gold.

Measurements: 12 by 10 inches (30x25cm)

This is my second Saint Adelaide icon--I love my first one so much that I decided to get a smaller version for the icon corner in my bedroom, as well as for travel. The icon expresses the wise presence and intercession of Saint Adelaide and is beautifully made. I now have several icons by Agnessa and each one powerfully conveys divine grace. Agnessa herself is wonderful and very responsive in all communications. I am most grateful!
