Gold-blasting with Panagia Immaculate

A wonderful gold print with the representation of the Virgin Mary, who bears the nickname Immaculate. The Virgin Mary Immaculate in Orthodox iconography is also called Our Lady of the Passion, because Christ gazes at the two Angels depicted on either side of the Virgin Mary and holding in their hands the symbols of the passion, namely the Cross, the Lance and the Sponge.

In the face of Christ one can discern his frightened gaze, which is explained by the fact that what he sees before him are his Passion and Sacrifice on the Cross. The name of the icon comes from the hymn of Compline “Aspile, Undefiled, Ahrade…” composed by the monk Paul. In this icon, the Virgin Mary is seen holding Jesus Christ in her arms, with her hand protectively under his body.
