Orthodox Icon depicting famous Byzantine image of Theotokos (Mother of God). Lithographic image on sturdy composite wood, with hand-painted detail, frame gilded with imitation gold-leaf with antiqued effect, with hook for wall hanging. Handmade in Greece, with certificate of authenticity on back. Size 18 x 24 cm (7 x 9.5 inches). The much revered icon this is based on is known as Our Lady of Vladimir. It was probably painted in Constantinople in the twelfth century, but is first heard of in Kiev in about 1131, whence it was taken in 1155 to the city of Vladimir. According to tradition, the horses pulling the cart taking the icon to Kiev stopped in Vladimir and refused to budge from that spot. The Assumption Cathedral was built there in honor of the Blessed Virgin, and to house her image.
