Madonna of Iverskaya

This icon from Mt. Athos gets its name from the Iveron (Iberian) Monastery. St. Luke is also given credit for this icon. In 1648, it became famous in Russia after Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich had a chapel built for a copy of the icon. According to legend, 365 fathers of the Iveron Monastery held an all night service. Holy water was used to bless the original and the panel on which the replica would be painted. The water was also given to the painter to mix in with his paint.

This top quality off set embossed print icon made in Russian Monastery in Sofrino using old printing technique using gold and silver foil.  Size with frame: 124 x 93 mm.
