The Holy Virgin Mary
In this icon, the Virgin bonds with Christ, her Son that we also might bond with Him. She is wearing a red garment underneath her cloak signifying her royal status as the Psalmist testifies: "...the glory of the daughter of the King is within..." (Ps. 44:13).
In her honor, one of the Church Fathers composed a hymn testifying to this: "Enthroned as Lord, your Son has placed you, O Virgin, at His right hand, for you are arrayed in the gold-embroidered raiment of the holy virtues; and He gives you the honor that is due unto you, O immaculate one."
