Byzantine culture, Near East, V-VI century AD

You are bidding an extremely rare terracotta applique depicting "Our Lady of the Sign" orans.
It is a particular type of icon of the Theotokos (Virgin Mary), facing the viewer directly, depicted either full length with her hands raised in the orans position, and with the image of the Child Jesus depicted within a round aureole upon her breast. The icon depicts the Theotokos during the Annunciation at the moment of saying, "May it be done to me according to your word."(Luke 1:38). The image of the Christ child represents him at the moment of his conception in the womb of the Virgin with a glass. The icon could come from the sanctuary of San Simeone (North Syria) where this worship was very practiced. Glass womb restored, otherwise intact!

    I am very happy for this rare stone-figure, by the way it is not Mezcla, but it originates from the region of the Andes in Peru and the culture of Recuay.
    Paching was excellent.

    Communicatie verliep vriendelijk. Verzending verliep goed. Helaas nauwelijks antwoorden op specifieke vragen m.b.t. artifact en overname oude collectie. Opvallend veel spirit idols aangeboden.

    Beste koper, het motief van vele afgoden aangeboden is dat ik een deel van mijn privé-idool collectie verkoopt. In ruim 40 jaar heb ik ongeveer 500 idolen verzameld van de Palaeolithische tot IJzertijd en ik vind het een van de belangrijkste collecties van zijn soort. In feite zijn de objecten allemaal authentiek (zelfs als u de authenticiteit niet twijfelt). Ik hoop dat dit antwoord uw twijfels elimineert. Als u niet tevreden bent met de aankoop, accepteer ik de restitutie
    Hartelijke groeten
