The Mother of God of Vladimir (Владимирская) is an Orthodox icon of the Eleusa type, which means Tenderness in Greek, and Умиление (Umilenie) in Russian. The relationship between Mother and Child is expressed with great emphasis. Christ, as a child, touches his Mother's face with one hand and presses His cheek against Hers. Her sorrowful gaze foresees the Passion and She embraces Him affectionately and maternally. Entirely hand painted in Russia. 8¾" x 7". Comes with a certificate of authenticity. 1 only, as shown.
