Mother of God of Belozersk, Russian icon, 5.5x4.3 inches. Russian icon of the Theotokos, faithful reproduction on linden hardwood of the original icon of the 16th century, preserved in the Russian Museum of Saint Petersburg.covered in gold leaf and painted by hand with tempera.
The icon, painted by hand with tempera on gold leaf background, shows the Holy Virgin holding the Infant Jesus close to her, cheeks touching, while showing him with her left hand as the only true and fair way to salvation.
The Theotokos eyes are sad, in constrast with the tendernesse showed by her gesture, indicating her awareness of her Son's future sacrifice for humanity.
According to some scholars, the bare legs of the Infant Jesus emphasize the vulnerability of his young age against his cruel destiny.
On the upper part of the icon, the Greek letters on the golden background refet to Christ as "The One Who is" and the Holy Virgin as "Mother of God".Delivered in a wooden case, the icon is accompanied by a guarantee certificate and a short story of the original icon, both on the back of the painting by the hook to hang it.
