The Story Behind This Icon:

This icon of the Theotokos portrays the “falling-asleep” of the Mother of Jesus Christ, surrounded by the Apostles. In the center of the icon, Christ holds a small child that represents the pure soul of the Virgin Mary. Above Christ, the gates of Heaven are open and ready to receive the Mother of God. Saint Peter (on the right) incenses the body of the Theotokos while Apostle Paul bows in honor of the Theotokos.

The Dormition of the Mother of God is one of the greatest feasts of the Church and is celebrated on August 15.

Work of the iconographer Lazaros Pechlivanidis. 


This icon is made of solid, natural limewood (Tilia) that has been prepared by hand using traditional methods and organic materials. The background is comprised of 22 Karat gold leaves that were meticulously applied by hand, piece by piece.  All of our icons are reproduced according to museum print standards and are authentic replicas of Holy Icons from Mount Athos and elsewhere.
