    Amazing Icon

    Posted by Micah Carnes on Feb 6th 2023

    This icon was the best companion to my Christ Pantocrator icon. It was also the hardest for me to get. I was formerly Protestant, and while I understood and affirmed the veneration of the icons of the Theotokos and the saints, still it was difficult for me to commit. Yet today this icon is one of my most treasured and fits well within my icon corner. I am grateful to have this for the sake of my daily prayers and devotions

    I am so happy with this icon! This is my 2nd Masterpiece icon. The detail of this icon is stunning. The depth of expression in her face and eyes, her contemplative countenance invites me to prayer each morning. The detail of the Christ child and His how of love for our Theotokos is a reminder of how much He loves us. Beautifully done! Thank you!
