Mother of God “Hodigitria" 11” x 8” Hand Painted
“Hodigitria” means, “The one who shows the Way”. Mary, the Mother of God, is pointing toward the Child Jesus who is “the Way, the Truth and the Life” as He will say of Himself.
This hand painted icon is “written” according to the traditional technique of egg tempera with 23k gold leaves, painted on kaluga wood with raised borders and braces- on gesso.
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.
