Russian Icon - Presentation of Child Christ at the Temple

The iconography of the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple celebrates Christ's encounter with the humanity. Mary is depicted offering child-Messiah to elderly Simeon who is overjoyed to receive him. Mary's mother Anna and her husband Joseph are standing beside her. The background depicts the interior of the Temple while the veil behind Simeon not only represents the veil of the Temple but also the hems of the Lord's cloak which fill the Temple according to the vision of prophet Isaiah (6:1).
