A wonderful lithography with a varnish layer and high quality paint depicting Virgin Mary / Panagia Amolyntos (The Pure). An icon aesthetically upgraded with collective value due to the handmade artificial ageing it has undergone. This is an exact copy of a Byzantine hagiography.


A wonderful image with Virgin Mary / Panagia, depicted lovingly holding little Christ in her arms. According to tradition, the original icon of Virgin Mary / Panagia was rescued during the iconoclastic period and was transferred to Mount Athos. She allegedly belonged to Victoria, the wife of a senator, who in her attempt to save the icon, threw it in the sea. According to the tradition, the icon sailed upright in the waves until it finally reached the coastline of Monastery of Filotheos in mount Athos, where it was spotted and picked up by the monks of the monastery. On Easter Monday there is a litany of the icon from the Holy Monastery to the spot where it was found. It is worth mentioning that the nickname Glykophilousa is one of about 500 names attributed to the Virgin Mary, which is one of the most beloved figures of the Orthodox Church.


This wonderful icon has been created with the technique of lithography. The creator of this icon has learned the canonization of iconography in workshops of the Monasteries of Mount Athos, where he was taught both the technique of lithography and the process of handmade artificial ageing, which bears the image with the representation of Virgin Mary / Panagia.
