Sandblasting gold printing with Panagia Glykofilousa

Wonderful icon with Panagia Glykofilousa, who is depicted lovingly holding the little Christ in her arms. According to tradition, the original icon of Panagia Glykofilousa survived during the iconoclasm thanks to a woman. This is Victoria, wife of a senator, who had the icon in her house and worshipped it secretly despite the ban. During an investigation by iconoclasts, Victoria took the icon and went down to sea, so as not to find and destroy it. There he worshipped her for the last time and threw her into the sea, hoping that thanks to a miracle she would be saved. Indeed, the icon did not sink and began to sail on the waters until it reached Mount Athos.
