Face of the Virgin  8" x 6"  Hand Painted


This hand painted icon is of the “Orant” Virgin. Mary is shown praying. She who intercedes with Christ for all humanity.


This hand painted icon is “written” according to the traditional technique of egg tempera with a background in gold leaves 23k on kaluga wood with raised borders and braces.


Worked in thin layers, it achieves a beautiful transparency when the final varnishing binds together all the differently colored layers in a transparent harmony which gives to the icon a depth and light expressive of its spiritual meaning.


All artwork is done in solitude and in prayer, anonymously and with love.
