The Sweet Kissing (or Loving-kindness, or Glykophilousa in Greek) icon is a tender and loving image depicting the love between Christ and the Virgin Mary. The Lord gently touches His Mother's face and she holds Him in her motherly embrace. The icons of this genre are celebrated on March 27.
This particular icon is from the ancient collection of St. Catherine's Monastery at Mount Sinai, dating to the 14th century.
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!
Was more than satisfied, when I received this icon. It looks even better in person. This is my first Theotokos icon, so I wanted something really nice. Highly recommend this icon!!
I adore this icon. I have it in our bedroom, and just love it. The quality was incredible.
