Mother of God with Child

icoon062_vThis type of icon is usually called ‘Madre della Conzolazione’, Mother of the Consolation, and perhaps derives from the Byzantine Hodigitria type (though the Child is sitting on the Mother’s right arm). The icon could be from the Cretan-Venetian school. This depiction is very widespread in East and West.
