Size 32 x 27 cm Good conditionUnusula iconography, because on this icon the Mother of God looks down upon the proportionally smaller crucified body lying in front of her. The subject and composition relate more to the Western or Catholic image known under the title of The Pieta, because Christ is not standing in his open tomb as usually as shown in icons "Do not weep for me, Mother". "Do not cry for me, Mother, as if you see me in my tomb. Because I, your Son, whom you conceived in your womb without planting, will rise from the dead and be glorified. Since I am God I shall rise in dignity, without the rigidity of death, I who extol you with great love and faithfulness."Collectible piece
