Material: bronze/brass/yellow metal (Muntz metall).


The icon shows the Mother of God on the throne. Her body is turned slightly, her head is bowed, and her right hand is raised in greeting. She is surrounded by 12 apostles and kings who face her. In the front left and right of the throne stand King David and King Solomon. The prophets hold open scrolls in their hands that refer to the prophecy: "I have seen the burning bush.", "What I have heard, I see.", "I am ...", "Rejoice very much, oh Zion. "," Here is the pregnant virgin. "," Rejoice in ... ". Behind it, a network of tendrils unfolds, which shows a medallion

with the image of Christ Emmanuel, the pre-existent logos, above the Mother of God. Sometimes the praise of the Blessed Mother is also connected with the root of Jesse, according to which the trunk of the tendril grows out of the Jesse lying on the ground.
