Icon of the Virgin Hodegtria – Traditional Furniture

Hand painted on wood panel with gilt highlights, this 18th century Greek icon depicts the Virgin and Child, with Mary holding her child in her left arm, as she gestures to him with the free right hand. The Christ Child, in turn, answers his mother’s intercessory prayer by raising his right hand in blessing. Icons like this one served to inspire and educate early Christians with imagery from the Old Testament and the Gospels. Inspiring for its beauty, history and narrative, it will enhance any collection.
