Small Russian Icon - The Enthroned Mother of God in silvered brass revetment cover

The "Madonna Enthroned" iconography dates from the Byzantine period and was used widely in Medieval and Renaissance times. The architectural throne suggests Mary as a metaphor for the living Temple, the ladder linking heaven and earth, the Inviolate Mountain.
