Virgin of Passion, Russian metal travelling icon with enemal, 19th century,size 9.8x 8.3 cm,  price € 450 ,-. 


The Strastnaya, or Virgin of Passion, is also venerated in the West as Our Lady of Everlasting Ministration. She belongs to the Hodigitria type. The Child is sitting on the Mother's left arm and looks at the passion tools, which are shown by two angels: left the cross, right the lance and the hyssop stalk. In Russia this type was mentioned for the first time in 1641. The icon is said to have been kept in the Strastnoy Convent in Moscow at some time; the convent got its name from it. The crown above the nimbus makes us assume that the archetype was also decorated with a crown (possibly a votive gift). Every Icon is sold with extensive written expertise.
