Icon of Our Lady of Vladimir 65x55 cm.Orthodox icon of Our Lady of Vladimir, real size 67x54 cm, hand made and painted in Poland.Tradition associates the Icon of the Madonna of Vladimir with St. Luke, after having faced the journey from Constantinople to Kiev where it was given as a gift to the family of the Grand Prince.Subsequently, at the behest of the Grand Prince, in 1155 it was taken to the Cathedral of the Dormition of the city of Vladimir, from which the icon takes its name.In 1395, during the occupation by the Tamerlans, the icon was brought to Moscow and the Muscovites attributed the miracle of the army's withdrawal to the Madonna and Moscow was miraculously saved from devastation.In the 16th century, Our Lady of Vladimir became the most important icon of the Russian state.The icon of the Virgin belongs to the iconographic type of the Mother of God of Tenderness, which depicts Mary holding the Child on her right arm and pressing him against her.Mary slightly bowing her head touches her Son's cheek with her cheek, thus portraying the relationship full of tenderness between the Mother and the Son.The Virgin also symbolizes the Church of Christ, therefore the icon represents all the fullness of love between God and man, the fullness that is possible only in the bosom of the Mother Church.In the icon love unites the celestial to the terrestrial, the divine to the human, the unity is transmitted by the contact of the face and in the conjunction of the halos.This Lady of Vladimir icon is handcrafted by Polish artists and hand painted with tempera, covered with gold leaf on wooden boards. The icon, despite being modern, appears ancient thanks to a specific treatment.The guarantee certificate and the history of the icon are supplied with the icon.
