Availability: In stock (1)

The Icon of the Black Madonna is said to have been painted by St Luke the Evangelist on the table that the Holy Family used in Nazareth.

It is a Hodegetria icon, meaning one who shows the way. Thus, Our Lady is depicted as pointing away from herself and towards the Christ Child. The icon owes its dark appearance and title of black Madonna to the centuries of candle smoke and incense before it.
