St. Eleousa with Child

Stock#: ZK005A

Price : US$ 53.95


This is an embossed reproduction of an icon of the middle ages depicting St. Eleousa with Child (approx. dimensions: 4 5/7" x 5 1/2"). It is hand-made on wood by original author's technology combining well the natural and synthetic ecological materials: wood, grounds, tempera paints, gold covers, natural varnishes and patina, etc.

Recommendation: Keep away from direct sunlight.

"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."
