Generally, in the Orthodox Christian tradition, icons of the Theotokos show her holding her Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. She is the Mother of God, and so it is right to represent her as a Mother holding the infant Jesus Who is God. However there are a few exceptions. In this rare icon Theotokos is shown without Christ. Most Holy Theotokos, our Beloved Mother, save us through your intercessions to your Son, our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ! Amen.
