Icon- Virgin Mary Portaitissa, 5.5 x 8.5 in

Regular price $40.00

Item #

This icon dates from the 9th century, where it originated in Nicea but is now in Greece. Poraitissa means "of the Portal", and the cut on the Virgin Mary's cheek is said to have started to bleed during an attack on the monastery in which it was kept. This particular interpretation of the icon dates from late 20th century Greece.
