The Theotokos (Hand-Painted Icons)

Mother of God of Tenderness (Russian)

Stock#: JD518L

Price : US$ 289.95

This is a hand-painted icon of Mother of God of Tenderness (approx. dimensions: 8 1/4" x 11", Origin: Russia), a tempera-on-wood reproduction of the original icon.

"Known in Greek as Eleousa and in Slavonic as Oumilenie, this icon is also called the Virgin of Tenderness or of Mercy. The relationship between Mother and Child is expressed with stunning force: taking refuge in her, He touches her chin with one hand and presses his cheek against hers. Her pensive, sorrowful eyes foresee his Passion and she embraces him with affectionate, maternal protection. The three golden stars which adorn her mantle, one above the forehead and one on each shoulder, signify her virginity before, during, and after giving birth.

Since thou art a well-spring of tenderness, O Theotokos, make us worthy of compassion; Look upon a sinful people; Manifest thy power as ever, for hoping on thee we cry aloud unto thee: Hail! as once did Gabriel, chief Captain of the Bodiless Powers".
