This hand painted Icon is made according to Greek traditions. The Nursing Mother of God, Virgo Lactans, or Madonna Lactans, is an iconography of the Madonna and Child in which the Virgin Mary is shown breastfeeding the infant Jesus. In Italian it is called the Madonna del Latte ("Madonna of milk"). It was a common type in painting until the change in atmosphere after the Council of Trent, in which it was rather discouraged by the church, at least in public contexts, on grounds of propriety.

Size: 9,0×12,0cm(3.7×4.5inches)

The subjects are taken from originals in museums and monasteries.

The color may be slightly different because of each individual device.

Blessed on Saint Spyridon Relics.

Made in Greece.
