Hand crafted Icon decorated with natural Baltic Amber pieces placed by hand.
It is a version of the icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of Mercy, it is also known as Our Lady of the Gate of Dawn, because it was located at the Gate of Dawn, in the Vilnius city wall, in Lithuania.
The original painting was painted by an unknown artist on 8 oak planks around 1630. It was covered with silver and gold around 1671. The head of Madonna is adorned with two crowns. The two crowns, made of pure gold, were blessed by Pope Pius XI in 1927. On July 2, 1927 a coronation ceremony took place and the painting received the title of Mother of Mercy.
This religious art will bring a little bit of heaven into your home and heart.
