The Virgin (from the Annunciation), XII century

In this XII century icon, as well as in the icon "Archangel Gabriel" (from the Annunciation), a refined elegance in the strokes and composition is already felt, together with the increasing presence of graphithizing in the portraits, characteristic for the Komneni époque.
It was painted in the XII century or, more precisely, between 1108 - 1120. It was commissioned by the Ohrid Archbishop Leo II Mung. It is decorated with silver frame, and has subsequently added details.
