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 Glykophilousa (“Sweet-Kissing”) from the Holy Monastery of Philotheou on Mount Athos. It is one of the few icons that was not destroyed during the iconoclastic period. It was transported miraculously to Athos. It belonged to a woman named Victoria, who was the pious wife of the iconoclast senator Symeon. In order to avoid handing it over to be destroyed, she threw it into the sea. Floating upright on the waves, the icon reached the port of the Monastery of Philotheou, where it was received with great honour and joy by the abbot and the fathers of the Monastery, who had been informed in advance of its arrival by the Theotokos herself. At the point on the shore where they set up the icon, a holy water spring began to flow. At that same place, on the Monday of Bright Week every year, there is a procession and blessing of holy water. There are so many medals of thanksgiving attached to the icon that the image of the Theotokos is nearly completely covered over. This alone is proof of the miraculous properties ascribed to the icon by the faithful.
