A miniature of the Holy Mother and Child. The Portable Panagia Eleousa, the Merciful one, one of the traditional representations of Theotokos. The Inscription Μeter Theou (Mother of God) and the Christogramm ICXC are added onm the sides.
- The mini icon is painted with eggtempera.
- The icon board is a scrap from wooden floor material.
- It has a partial layer of gessoed canvas glued on
- The background is copper gold (and a layer of organic dye that makes it look like an old folk piece).
- Finally, the colors are sealed with shellac and varnish, to create a spiritual artifact that will last.
