What an incredible icon to grace my icon corner. Everytime I look at this lovely addition from across the room, I am reminded of the akathist that says, "Exult now and be glad, O Zion,
Be radiant, O Pure Theotokos,
In the Resurrection of your Son!" She is certainly radiant in this depiction, and seeming calls me to pray while I am in my great room. High quality icon - Uncut Mountain Supply never disappoints!
I purchased this icon for our daughter and son-in-law and they are very, very pleased with it.
It was so beautiful I had to order one for myself!!! It's hard for me to find the right words to describe it....it is just so beautiful.
When I was perusing various ikons of Mary, I saw this one, and was immediately drawn to it. When the ikon arrived I was very pleased. It's beautifully done, and a very powerful image.
One of the most beautiful of Mary that I have seen, but the "True Vine" takes you into the reality of her as the closest connection to Jesus.
