Hand painted icon with Virgin Mary Giatrissa, made in Mount Athos, on natural wood. The icon is delivered in a wooden box.

The story of the icon begins in Loutraki, where a woman named Maria, who
was a midwife, returning from Jerusalem, took with her an icon of
Virgin Mary. This icon depicted Virgin Mary holding the infant in the
left hand. The woman donated the icon to her friend Maria Sokou. Twenty
days later, the woman died, as she had predicted. Later, Maria Sokou and
the inhabitants of Loutraki, who loved the icon, built the first temple
dedicated to the Virgin Mary of Giatrissa. More about Virgin Mary Giatrissa.
