Narrative:
The Holy Virgin gestures to her Divine Son, directing our attention and adoration to Him. This classic pose of the Mother of God is known as the Hodigitria, that is the “Guide” or “Indicator of the way.” The icon combines a dignified and restrained realism with the traditional symbolism of iconography, reminiscent of the Moscow school of iconography in the nineteenth century.

The three stars on the Virgin’s mantle represent her virginity before, during and after the birth of Jesus. Although a child, Jesus is dressed as an adult, holds a scroll and blesses the beholder. The Greek letters “IC XC” are the abbreviation for “Jesus Christ” and “MP ØY” are the abbreviation for “Mother of God.”
(This narrative is printed on the back of Note Cards. A copy is included with each plaque.)

Use our Custom Imprinting service to create unique holy cards and prayer cards! Great for announcements, celebrations, dedications, memorials and favorite prayers.
