Vladimirskaya Mother of God

Icon: Vladimirskaya Mother of God
Russia, Moscow, late 16th century
32 x 26.5 cm

The type of the Mother of God Vladimirskaya is one of the most famous icons in Russia. On the icon, the Virgin carries the Christ Child on her right arm. With her left hand she gestures towards her Son. The Christ Child presses his cheek against his mother’s and gazes at her. Mary does not respond to his gaze but looks past Him. The icon emphasizes the human aspect of Christ and the focal point is the intimate tie with his mother, against whom He is nestling.
