Virgin Mary icons often depict the Madonna and Child, with two angels positioned above them, following the classic style of Byzantine icons of the Theotokos. These iconic representations hold deep religious significance and are known for their distinctive artistic style. The central figure in the icon is the Madonna, the Virgin Mary, holding the Child Jesus in her arms. Mary is typically depicted with a serene and gentle expression, symbolizing her role as the Mother of God. She is portrayed with a veil or a head covering, emphasizing her modesty and humility. The Child Jesus is depicted as a young child, often blessing or reaching out towards the viewer. He may hold a small scroll or gesture with his hands, symbolizing his divine nature and teachings. The bond between mother and child is a central theme, representing Mary's role as the Theotokos, the Mother of God. Above the Madonna and Child, two angels are usually positioned. These angels serve as attendants and witnesses to the divine presence. They are depicted with outstretched wings and often carry symbols of their heavenly duties, such as censers or scrolls.Image ID#: 8901 / Category: Religion, Arts / Price: 499$
