The Mother of God of Arabia (Arapetskaya, or “O, All-Made Mother”)

The Mother of God of Arabia (Arapetskaya, or O, All Made Mother)

According to the church legend, the icon was revealed during the service of the Apostle Thomas in Arabia. The image of the Mother of God is full of simple-hearted charm. The edge of her “moire” maforia is decorated with a border with the text of a glorifying hymn.

The head of Mary is crowned with a fairy-tale royal crown.

On her shoulders and forehead instead of the usual stars – symbols of virginity – medallions with the heads of angels are depicted – echoes of ancient stones. Celebration of the icon is celebrated on September 19 n. Art.
