Brother Simon based this icon on a sketch by Greek iconographer Photios Kontoglou (1895-1965), who revived classical iconography in Greece in the twentieth century. The Visitation icon depicts the moment of joyous revelation when Saint Elizabeth embraces the Holy Virgin, and inspired by the Holy Spirit she declares Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. Their robes seem to fly in the breeze, showing both the dynamism of this moment and also that with haste the Virgin went to visit Saint Elizabeth. Blessed Mary Icons are some of our most popular.
