ICON NUMBER : 77835

Virgin of Vladimir, 19th century, Russia, tempera on wooden board, size 26.5 x 22.5 cm, price € 1950,-.

According to the ancient traditions, this original icon was painted by St Luke. In Russia this icon is without any doubt the most well-known Mother of God Icon. In any version of the icon of the Mother of God of Tenderness, the Vladimir icon being only the most famous example, we see Mary's perfect devotion, a devotion so absolute that God finds in her the person who can both give birth to himself and who will ever after serve as the primary model of Christ-centered wholeness -- the woman whom all generations will regard as blessed. In her assent to the angelic invitation, Mary said not only on behalf of herself and all her righteous ancestors but for all generations, "Yes, Lord, come!" Through her all humanity gives birth to Jesus Christ, and through Christ she becomes our mother. Condition: authentic icon. Provenance: private collection Germany. Every icon is sold with extensive written expertise
