The Theotokos (Greek for Virgin Mary, literally meaning "Birth-Giver of God") is regarded as the holy protectress of Russia. The icon is displayed in the Tretyakov Gallery, Moscow in a former church in the grounds of the museum. Her feast day is June 3. Even more than most famous icons, the original has been copied repeatedly for centuries, and many copies have considerable artistic and religious significance of their own.
The icon is a version of the Eleusa (tenderness) type, with the Christ child snuggling up to his mother's cheek. Silver 999 + Gold 999 + 26 Swarovski. 93,3 g (3 oz) + 1/4 oz Gold. Coin comes in the capsule with a luxury case. Please see our other auctions.
