The Dormition of the Virgin - Hand-Painted Icon

[Model: HND_thv2-2330]

Byzantine Hand Painted 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.


Hand-Painted Icons occupy a valuable place in ecclesiastical art because, beyond their obvious artistic value, a hand-painted icon unites man with the holiness of the depicted person.


For the Hand-Painted Icon of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary, our experienced painters use traditional techniques and high-quality materials that offer excellent depiction and durability over time.


All our Hand-Painted Icons are painted with egg tempera, while you can choose the size of the icon, the decoration of the background, the language of the inscriptions as well as the type of wood you wish to use.


Note: The final Icon may slightly differ from the catalog photo.
