Theotokos Formidable Protection

Theotokos Formidable Protection

A beautiful reproduction of the 18th century icon Theotokos Fovera Prostasia (Formidable Protection), handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

The Archangels are holding the instruments of his passion, as Christ seeks protection of the arms of his Mother. His sandal falling off which reflects Genesis 3:15, the serpent smiting the heel of the Seed of the Woman, which is Jesus, and that Jesus would crush the serpent's head.

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.
