Description

Created by American iconographer Brother Simeon Davis, this original icon of the Virgin and Child exemplifies the radiant colors, fine detail, and fidelity to classical iconography that has made the Monastery Icons collection the most beloved Christian art over the past forty-one years. This icon is one of a kind and will no longer be available once it is sold.

Painted in the classic style of Byzantine icons of the Theotokos, known as the Hodigitria ("Guide" or "indicator of the way"), the Mother of God looks out at us and gestures with her hand towards Jesus, guiding our attention to Him.

This icon is painted on 1/4-inch non-tempered artist's hardboard measuring 11" x 14". The artist used matte fluid acrylics which replicate classic egg tempera. The background is painted. The icon has a protective artist's grade acrylic varnish. Created in the year 1993, the painting includes the artist's "signature" in tiny letters: "by Simeon 1993," as is traditional in iconography.

Purchase or transfer of ownership of this icon does not convey any rights in the work itself. Frame not included. Shipping and handling for this icon is $40.00.
