Virgin and Child, Sweet Kissing - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_th-8988]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of Virgin Mary and Child. Virgin Mary is depicted according to the "Sweet Kissing" type.

Panagia "Sweet Kissing" (in Greek "Glykophilousa") is a popular miraculous icon of the Virgin Mary with great theological interest as, the original, it was miraculously saved from the iconoclasm of the 9th century. 

Specifically, the pious Christian, Victoria, threw the icon into the sea in order to save it from destruction. In a miraculous way, the icon reached Mount Athos, at the Holy Monastery of Philotheοu, where it was rescued by the abbot and monks, to whom Panagia appeared in a vision to notify them of the miraculous event. 

At the spot where the Icon of Panagia "Sweet Kissing" was found, holy water sprang up and, to this day, a liturgy and holy water is held on Monday of the Diakainisimi Week.

The Icon of Panagia "Sweet Kissing" 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.

Iconographer: Monk Michael, Mount Athos
