Icon with water-gilding on natural linden wood. The wood has been prepared in heat and gilded with gold leaf 24K, in accordance with traditional Byzantine techniques. The icon has been painted with egg-tempera paints for best performance and endurance of colors used. The colors were chosen based on studies and analyses of older icons by renowned iconographers, after ARTIS had first conducted conservation treatments on them.

An exact copy of the icon of the Theotokos Odigitria, from the Holy Monastery of Xenophontos on Mount Athos. This icon was originally from Constantinople and then placed in the main church of the Holy Monastery of Vatopedi. In 1730, however, without any explanation, it disappeared from its place and was found in the church of the Holy Monastery of Xenophontos. The fathers at Vatopedi thought some act of sacrilege had occurred, and once the icon was returned, they implemented strict security measures. After only a little time had passed, the icon again was missing from its place. Shortly thereafter, news reached Vatopedi from the fathers at Xenophontos that the icon had returned to its corresponding place in the main church of their monastery. The fathers at Vatopedi were convinced that a miracle had occurred and did not ask for its return, not wanting to resist the will of the Mother of God. They even went to the Monastery of Xenophontos to venerate the icon. For a long time afterward, they continued to send oil and candles to its new place of rest where it remains to this day.
