On the icon of the Mother of God Vladimirskaya, Mary carries the Christ Child on her right arm. With her left hand she gestures towards her Son. The Christ Child presses his cheek against his mother’s and gazes at her. Mary does not respond to his gaze but looks past Him at the viewer. The icon emphasizes the human aspect of Christ and the focal point is the intimate tie with his mother, against whom he is nestling.
