Russian painted icon, Our Lady sitting on throne 27x22cm.
In this icon the throne is like a temple and it becomes the metaphor of the Virgin herself, who is the real temple of the Holy Spirit.
The altar step on which the Virgin rests her feet comes out of the throne like a drawer.
Painted by the Byzantine artisans following the traditional Russian iconographic technique of egg tempera on gold leaf, this icon is delivered in an elegant blue box with satin insides.
It comes with certificate of origin and authenticity.
