This icon of the Mother of God has a primitive tradition dating back to the 10th century but still manages to render a touch of modernity. The child is dressed in royal clothes. Pay attention to the shape of his tunic that echoes the shape of an egg, which as we decorate the eggs for the feast of Pascale, reminds us that he is the Alpha and the Omega, the one who came to save us. The face of his mother also takes the shape of an egg as in unity with his Divine Son.
Please note minor differences are possible but you will be provided pictures of the actual icon you are receiving.
