Very Rare Mother of God Cyprus

Lot 0003 Details

Description
  • Title: Very Rare Mother of God Cyprus
  • Origin: Religious Antique Old Russian Icon
  • Date/Period: 19th century
  • Material: tempera on wooden board
  • Dimensions: 34 x 28 cm
  • Provenance: This icon shows the Mother of God seated on a throne with the Christ Child on her lap and archangel Michael and Gabriel. Provenance: private collection Germany. The authenticity of every icon is guaranteed. The prototype of this holy icon manifested itself in the year 392 on the island of Cyprus at the tomb of Righteous Lazarus, the friend of Christ (October 17), and is kept there in a monastery. Renowned copies of the Cyprus Icon are at the Moscow’s Dormition Cathedral, and in the Nikolo-Golutvin church in the village of Stromyn, Moscow diocese (Commemorated on the Sunday of Orthodoxy). During the week of the Triumph of Orthodoxy, the Greek Synaxarion has an account of an icon which is probably the Cyprus Icon. On the island of Cyprus a certain Arab was passing by a church dedicated to the Most Holy Theotokos. In order to display his hatred for Christianity, the man shot an arrow at an icon of the Mother of God which hung by the gate. The arrow struck the Virgin’s knee, from which blood began to flow. Overcome with fear, the Arab spurred his horse and rode for home, but was struck dead before he could get there. In this way, he was punished for his impiety. Every Icon is sold with extensive written expertise.
