Dormition of Theotokos - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-6806]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary.

After the Crucifixion of the Lord and by his command, the Virgin Mary lived with the Evangelist John, his brother James and their mother, Salome. Three days before her death, the Archangel Gabriel revealed her death to her and she rejoiced because she would now be with her son, the Savior of the world.

When the day arrived, the Apostles were away preaching the Gospel, but a sudden cloud transported them to the deathbed of the Virgin Mary, in the house of John.

After her dormition, she was taken to her tomb in Gethsemane from where she rose on the third day.


Theotokion from the Service of the Small Paraklesis

The doors of caring do now open unto us, O most blessed Theotokos, So that hoping in you we shall not fail; Through you we may be delivered from adversities, For you are the salvation of the Christian faith.


The Icon of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary is an exact copy of Byzantine art and is created by experienced craftsmen using the method of gold printing where hagiographic leaves of 22 karat gold are applied in detail to decorate the background.

During the final processing, the icon is painted with dark red color around the perimeter and polished with a special varnish to maintain its shine.

It is offered in level or recessed wooden surface and is suitable for wall mounting.
