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


The icon “Don't cry for me, mother” comes from the Holy Saturday liturgy. Christ is shown standing in half length in an open coffin, the cross rises in the background. He has inclined his head towards the Blessed Mother, who supports him with both arms at chest height. With the arms crossed in front of the body and lowered eyes, the iconography is reminiscent of the Man of Sorrows or the Vespers image that was widespread in the West. The edge is decorated with vine tendrils all around.
