I have been blessed to see the original icon in person and this replica is very beautiful. I am so happy I decided to get it. I love having icons on my wall of those I have seen because it helps me to feel more connected to them and to the place where they reside.
This is the main icon of the Theotokos that I have, and it serves me well. I like to look at the ornate riza/oclad's (metal with gemstones) details, and the facial expression on the Theotokos's face is wonderful. This icon of Her is more fun to pray with than most other icons.
Your products and service are the best. I am a loyal customer.
