Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Anne, Mother of Theotokos.
Saint Anne came from the tribe of Levi and was the mother of the Virgin Mary, who gave birth to Jesus Christ. The name "Anne" comes from the corresponding Hebrew "Hanna" which has the meaning of "favour" and "grace".
After the Presentation of the Virgin Mary to the Temple, when Anne together with her husband Joachim left the young Mary in the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, she dedicated her life to God, with fasting and prayer. To her fellow human beings she was philanthropic and showed charity to those who needed her.
