This stunning icon features a full-length portrait of Mary, Mother of God. The halo behind her head is made of solid silver and is patterned with exquisite detail. Her robes of red and blue represent her role in bringing together the terrestrial and the celestial: the red on the outside of the vestment symbolizes blood, worldly being, and humanity, while the blue on the inside of the vestment symbolizes the divine realm of heaven.
Icon measures 11" (length) x 7.5" (width). Hand painted in the Orthodox style by an artist from Palestine.
