Russian painted icon, Mother of God Strastnaja (of the Passion).
This icon is made by Russian painters with the traditional iconographic techniques of Orthodox art.
Delivered in an elegant blue box.
This icon belongs to the type Hodigitria, known in the western countries as "Our Lady of Perpetual Help" even though the Oriental name "Of the Passion" better describes this representation.
In effect, two angels at the sides of Mary's face show the instruments of the Passion of Christ. Jesus looks scared when he turns to look at them and with his hands he holds tight the Virgin's right hand while one of his sandals falls from his foot.
This icon is celebrated on the 13th of august and on the 6th Sunday of Easter.
