Theotokos Kardiotissa

Theotokos Kardiotissa

A beautiful Greek Orthodox icon of Theotokos Kardiotissa, handmade & hand painted by an expert Greek hagiographer.

“Kardiotissa” is one of the hundreds of names we use for the Most Holy Theotokos to describe her. This word comes from the Greek word “kardia” that means heart, because she’s holding Jesus next to her heart.

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.
