Icon with water-gilding on plywood. 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.

The Benaki Museum icon is one of the most important examples of the Theotokos Glykophilousa icon, with its reclining infant. It was painted by Emmanuel Lambardou in the 16th century. The Theotokos holds the infant Christ on her right side, and she has her head turned toward Him. Christ nestles in the embrace of His mother, half-reclining with His face close to hers. The portrayal of the “reclining infant” with crossed legs and His hand below her face represents the symbolic notion of Sleep-Death.
