The Virgin of the Sign (Богоматерь Знамение). This depiction of the Mother of God with Her hands upraised in prayer (known as "orans") is of very ancient origin in Christian art. In this small icon, She is depicted with a small image of the Jesus Christ sitting upon her knees and centered in an oval shield. This is the moment during the Annunciation where She is saying: "May it be done to me according to your word." The Virgin of the Sign refers to the prophecy of Isaiah 7:14: "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel". The icon is associated with the miraculous deliverance of Novgorod from invasion in the year 1170. Painted in Mstera, Russia. Materials:  egg tempera, metallic paints, papier-mache, glossy clear lacquer. 3½"x2½".  Gift boxed. 1 only.
