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.
