A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of the Our Lady Of The Sign
icon, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.
The icon depicts the Theotokos during the Annunciation
at the moment of saying, "May it be done to me according to your word
."(Luke 1:38). The image of the Christ child represents him at the moment of his conception in the womb of the Virgin.
As with most Orthodox icons of Mary, the letters ΜΡ ΘΥ
(short for Μ
, "Mother of God") are placed on the upper left and right of the head of the Virgin Mary.
Made using traditional materials (selected aged timber frames, egg tempera, 24K gold leaf, natural powder paint and varnishes) and old techniques. It is an exact reproduction of an antique Byzantine masterpiece.
The icon bears the artist's signature on the front and the certificate of authenticity on the back.
