Hand painted icon of Theotokos Axion Esti made on Mount Athos, on natural wood with two braids on its back side. The icon is delivered in a wooden box.
This miraculous icon at the end of the first century was located in a cell near Karyes, Mount Athos, which today bears the same name "Axion Esti". At that time, the archangel Gabriel appeared miraculously in the cell and sang with the monk, presenting the previously unknown prelude "Axion esti...". Μore about Theotokos Axion Esti.
