This 19th century Old Believer icon of the great penitent Saint Mary of Egypt comes from Mstera, Russia. She stands in the center, surrounded by scenes of her meetings with Abba Zosimas.
She is commemorated on April 1, and in the Orthodox Church, the Fifth Sunday of Lent is also dedicated to her. The story of her life is read each year on the Thursday of the Great Canon.

We have been looking for just the right icon of Mary of Egypt for over a year. It was well worth the wait. It is a beautiful depiction of her life. I like the different options you can choose as far as size and finish.
Great Icon, great Company

Legacy accidentally sent me the wrong icon. They contacted me right away and made things right. I love working with Legacy Icons. I love the beauty of the craftsmanship and the customer service is out of this world!
