Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Panagia "Platytera of the Heavens".
Traditionally, Panagia "Platytera of the Heavens" is depicted in the dome above the altar, facing down to the congregation. Her name, Platytera (meaning more spacious), symbolizes her ability to contain within her the creator of the world and, also, all the humanity.
