Mother of God of Arabia | Arapet

This exquisite icon depicts the Mother of God, gracefully holding her child with her left arm,
clad in a gorgeous robe adorned with a cloud pattern. The child’s red robe leaves his upper body
exposed, while his delicate legs are crossed. The Mother of God points to her cherished
offspring with her right hand, utilizing the Hodegetria gesture. The maphorion hem is adorned
with the inscription, “Mother, who gave birth to him, oh, all-blessed one, most holy of saints,
we have all implored your forgiveness.” Notably, the star trinity symbol serves as another
striking feature of her robe. The overall exquisiteness of this icon leaves a profound impression
on its viewers.
