Hand painted icons of Virgin Mary

Our Lady Of The Sign

olots
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 ΜΗΤΗΡ ΘΕΟΥ, "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.

We can have any image or Christian scene hand made on commission. Please take a look at an indicative list of additional icons available, or contact us for more information.
