Holy Family Icon
Hand painted icon with traditional technique. The icon of the Holy Family is not among the icons of Russian tradition; it was written for the first time in the early 1900s by a Greek nun. Although not belonging to ancient classical iconography, he soon found his own identity both in prayer and in his place in homes. This particular representation invites family unity. The hands that converge centrally are a sign of communion and mutual help, emphasizing that the power of love helps overcome all that life puts on the way. Jesus the Child supported by the Madonna who from St. Joseph blesses this union and makes its daily presence felt.
