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!
