Blessed Mother and child- Icon

Just as in byzantine iconography (more a black and white version) the contrast between
the materials used and the treatment of the face next to the light reflecting
silver leaf, very much like earth and light, creates very a beautiful and meaningful contrast,
summing up our human condition.

It has the fresh look of a sketch or the meaningful appearance of a tattered mural which informed and inspired generations.
