Russian hand-painted icon, Immortal Flower
Byzantine icon, St. Michael on horseback, hand painted in Russia.
This icon is hand painted in Russia with the technique of egg tempera on a gold leaf background. It's painted by local artists following the antique iconographic techniques of the Byzantine art.
In the liturgical hymns Our Lady's Virginity is compared to flowers and buds which don't ever wither.
This is the origin of this icon, which features those sacred and profane symbols that are linked to Mary: the throne, the altar, the celestial palace, the open book, the red and golden curtain, the celestial garden, Heaven's door, the star showing the sun, the burning candle, the luminous light, the prayer thurible.
All these images can be found in this icon.
