A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of Panaghia Glykophilousa Dexiokratousa
(Virgin mary kissing Jesus affectionately and holding Him with the right hand), handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.
The icon depicts the Virgin Mary caressing her son, so that they appear to be kissing. Virgin Mary appears sad, seemingly contemplating his coming Passion. The representation from the Cretan School of the 17th Century shows very pronounced characteristics of the Virgin Mother.
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.
