An exact replica of the icon of The Mother of God from the Holy Mount Athos. Made on a particle board with the use of the most advanced imprinting and production techniques. The background is decorated in a way that gives the impression of glossy gilding.
The Mother of God, or Theotokos, is the primary person who, after the Holy Trinity, contributed decisively to the realization of the plan of Salvation of the human race. A particularly popular icon of her among the faithful is that of the Theotokos the Merciful.
Christ comes very close to His Mother, with His face turned towards Hers. He holds a closed scroll in His right hand, while holding on to Her garment with His left. This original icon was painted on Mt. Athos, by the monks of the Holy Koutloumousian Cell of Saint John the Theologian.
