Hand painted icons of Virgin Mary

Panaghia Glykophilousa

A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of Panaghia Glykophilousa (Virgin mary kissing Jesus affectionately), 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.

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.
