Icon "12 principal Christian feast" Palekh, XIX century

Icon "12 principal Christian feast"

In the central part of the icon is the Introduction to the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows and Virgin Mary. In the center of the icon is the three-year-old Virgin Mary, who was brought to the temple by Her parents - Joachim and Anna. For a long time they were childless and took a vow: if the Lord gives them parental happiness, then they will devote the Infant to God. It was a sacrifice - to give their only, long-awaited child. The icon shows the fulfillment of a promise: Joachim and Anna bring little Mary to the temple, where the Jerusalem priest meets the family. According to Church Tradition, he was the righteous Zacharias, the future father of John the Baptist, therefore, on the icon, his head is surrounded by a halo. Behind the priest is the Holy Gates of Saints (a special place in the Jerusalem temple), where the main shrines of the Jewish people were stored in the ark.

In the upper part is the icon of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In the lower part of the Icon "Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary"

In the circle of the central part of the icon of saints: Tatiana, Sandra, Anna, Paul, Catherine, Mary Magdalene.
