The hodigitria (guide) genre of icons features Christ sitting on the Virgin's lap. Her hands point to her Son in a gesture of humility, guiding the viewer to look to Him.
This particular icon is part of the Comnenus mosaic at the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. The stunning image was uncovered in the 20th century, after the ancient church was changed from a mosque into a museum.
This icon is available as part of a set, together with a matching icon of Christ. Click here to learn more.
I have purchased several Icons and the workmanship and materials are top notch. Highly recommend. You will easily be able to pass down your favorite Icons to family members, when you pass.
