Icons of Theotokos
Blessings of the Lord! We carry over 500 icons, many of which are of our most beloved, The Theotokos and Holy Virgin Mary. We ask for your patience as we work hard to properly upload them to our site. Kindly contact us if you do not see the icon you are looking for. We offer sizes up to 11x14 inches and bigger if needed.
Our icons are so embellished as to look handwritten, but offered at prices that are ten times less expensive than handcrafted icons! The icons below are shown prior to being finished.

The Kazan icons are traditionally small, following the original (9×11 inches). The Kazan icon of the Virgin remains popular, especially as a wedding gift
12H11 More Honorable - 20th c. St. Anthony's Monastery 8x10
It is truly right to bless thee, O Theotokos, ever blessed, and most pure, and the Mother of our God. More honorable than the cherubim, and beyond compare more glorious than the seraphim. Without corruption thou gavest birth to God the Word. True Theotokos, we magnify thee.

The Virgin is on a double frame, standing on Mount Athos (the monastic pennisula dedicated to her in northeastern Greece), called the Garden of the Theotokos, where She is considered the head of every monastic enclosure on this sacred land. For over a thousand years this monastic enclave has nurtured the life of monasticism and the Church by producing hundreds and hundreds of living Saints. May they continue to do so in every generation to come!
