SOLD – Theotokos & Christ Original Icon

£0.00

Out of stock

This hand-painted original icon shows the Theotokos holding the child Christ, pointing towards Him in the traditional model of Hodegetria (Greek: Ὁδηγήτρια, literally: “She who shows the Way”; Russian: Одигитрия), or Virgin Hodegetria, an iconographic depiction of the Theotokos (Virgin Mary) holding the Child Jesus at her side while pointing to Him as the source of salvation for humankind.

Christ is shown in the style of a young Philosopher, rather than a childish baby, since He was God before the Ages, even when born as a child. 

Forming a pair (not identical boards) with the Icon of Christ Blessing, this icon is the perfect size for a home icon corner. It is painted traditionally in egg tempera and will require varnishing in Summer 2020 once the egg has hardened sufficiently – care instructions and further information are included with the purchase.
