OMIROS. VIRGIN. 23x17 Inches. Free Shipping.
VIRGIN ACRYLIC ON SILK
The Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ, mother of God. Mediator between suffering mankind and Christ and the protectress of Constantinople. She was widely venerated. Mary had not contracted any impurity for she had conceived and given birth in a virginal way. Nor did the law affecting the redeeming of the first-born apply to Jesus, the true Lamb of God who came to take away the sins of the world.
Her outer cloak is the iconic blue while her inner garment is a vivid red, symbolizing her carrying her son’s divinity throughout her life. We are immediately drawn to the truth in her eyes. Her gaze is soft yet straight. Her features are more defined than in Omiros’ other depictions of the Virgin. The power in her posture indicates a strong female presence. This is an ode to motherhood.
