022-XC Weep Not For Me, O Mother
This icon Weep Not For Me, O Mother is a lacquered icon on wood (printed paper image, wood, lacquer).
The history of this icon is noteworthy. The Shroud of the Lord was preserved in the Theotokos Basilica in Blachernae since the 5th century. This great holy object was exhibited every Friday, folded so as to reveal the waist-long image of Christ. However, people were not allowed to kiss it, which was why they painted a similar image of Christ in the Tomb. This icon is available in several sizes.
