Byzantine style icons for churches and homes

Virgin of Tenderness - egg tempera


Mother of God of Tenderness

Also known as Eleousa (Virgin of Tenderness, Tender Mercy). The icon can be recognized by the arm of the Child around the neck of the mother. The face of the Virgin that is looking towards us is full of warmth and human comprehension, but also with deep sadness. The miraculous icon of the Mother of God of Vladimir is among the best known in the Western World. It's one of the oldest icons of the type.
