Silver medallion with an icon of the Most Holy Theotocos – Matka
Pendant for a necklace with a silver medallion with laser engraving of the icon of the Most Holy Theotocos – Matka. Made of anti-allergic alloy of 92.5% silver, without nickel, with rhodium plating, which increases the shine and durability. This treatment prevents darkening and corrosion, and makes it safe for constant wearing, for those with sensitive skin.
The icon itself, according to which the laser engraving of the medallion was made, is from the 19th century, painted by Dicho Zograf or one of his students. Dimitar Krstev Dichov (1819-1872) is a Macedonian icon painter, a representative of the Debar school. He is one of the most famous icon and fresco painters in the Balkans in the 19th century. In his short life he painted more than 2,000 icons.
The icon was part of the iconostasis, and today has a special place in the temple itself. It happened, very rarely, to see her – how the Most Holy Mother of God cries – The only, forever, stand-in(representative) for all.
