The Mother of God has long been associated with Moses' burning bush, which held God but was not burned up. This icon is a symbolic representation of this idea. The Theotokos is surrounded by ranks of angels and archangels, as well as various biblical and historical scenes. In her hand is a ladder, a symbol from the Old Testament vision of Jacob, representing that she was the means by which God came down to earth.

I don't think I have to spend time reviewing the quality of the Masterpiece icons on this site; they're excellent, as many others have attested to. As for this particular icon, it is everything I hoped it would be. I first saw the Virgin of the Burning Bush icon in the chapel at a local monastery and knew that I wanted one for myself. Legacy Icons is the only place I found that made this design, and they do it very well. The colors are bright and vibrant, the reds and blues almost popping out of the scene. I thoroughly recommend this icon to anyone who wants to own the Virgin of the Burning Bush.
