"The Virgin Mary in the Orthodox view is not regarded as a mediatrix or co-redemptress. She is an intercessor for us, and the content of prayer addressed to her is a request for her intercession. The Orthodox concept of the Church is the basic reason for the invocation of the Theotokos and all the saints. The Militant Church on earth and the Victorious Church in heaven are intimately bound together in love." -Archbishop Dmitri

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.
