The iconography of the Holy Virgin Pelagonitissa (179)
The icon of Pelagonitissa is considered a variation of the Virgin of Tenderness (Glykofilousa). The infant Christ hugging his mother with his back turned to the viewer characterizes this type, a gesture that boosts the drama of the mother worried for her frightened child who is threatened with martyrdom. ©1997-2021Design by Monahov Oleg
