TI001L Christ Pantocrator (approx. dimensions: 9 5/6" x 15", Origin: 18-th Century, Rila Monastery)

"We reverence thy spotless icon, O gracious Lord,

and ask forgiveness of our transgressions, O Christ our God:

for of thine own good will thou wast pleased

to ascend the Cross in the flesh,

that thou mightest deliver from bondage

to the enemy those whom thou hadst fashioned.

Wherefore, we cry aloud unto Thee:

Thou hast filled all things with joy,

O our Savior, for Thou didst come to save the world."


TI002M The Virgin Eleousa (approx. dimensions: 7" x 9", Origin: End of the 17-th Century, Rila Monastery)

TI002L The Virgin Eleousa  (Size: 11 4/5" x 15 3/4", Origin: End of the 17-th Century, Rila Monastery)

"Known in Greek as Eleousa and in Slavonic as Oumilenie, this icon is also called the Virgin of Tenderness or of Mercy. The relationship between Mother and Child is expressed with stunning force: taking refuge in her, He touches her chin with one hand and presses his cheek against hers. Her pensive, sorrowful eyes foresee his Passion and she embraces him with affectionate, maternal protection. The three golden stars which adorn her mantle, one above the forehead and one on each shoulder, signify her virginity before, during, and after giving birth."
