The Theotokos of the Passion

You see here a special type of "Mother of God"-Icons. It relates to the Passion of Christ, which we will remember next week on 14th April as "Good Friday". The boy Jesus looks in anguish and awareness at the both angels, which show the instruments of his Passion to him. His hands are seeking hold at his mothers hand. Already with the birth of the body the "Passion of the Cross" is given for Christ.
Mother looks at us as to assure and ponder over its meaning.
