Description

There are a number of icons depicting Sophia, the Wisdom of God, in the Russian Orthodox Church, namely, in Kiev, Novgorod, Vologda, Tobolsk, Moscow, Holy Trinity Saint Sergius Lavra, & other places. They depict the Mother of God & the hypostatic Wisdom – the Son of God – who was incarnated through her. All these icons convey one main idea. They take the Wisdom, or Sophia, to represent the Son of God, based on Proverbs 9, where it is said, Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars. These words point at Christ, the Son of God, who is called God’s Power & God’s Wisdom in the Epistles; the word house alludes to the most holy Virgin Mary who contributed to the incarnation of the Son of God. These are the words that the iconography of Saint Sophia, the Wisdom of God, is based on. The icon of Sophia, the Wisdom of God, located in the Sophia Cathedral in Kiev, is the most ancient of such icons. That icon was borrowed from Justinian’s Church in Constantinople. This icon was made by monks, in the Moscow region. Image of the icon is made in high-quality lithography with double layers of metallographic printing. Medium sized icon Size: 7,5 x 6 cm Icon mounted on pressed wood plate 4 mm thick Condition: new On the back side of the icon, there is a notch for wall hanging. Thank you for visiting!
