The Theotokos Areovindos (Fire-Appearing)

The Theotokos Areovindos icon is of unknown origin. It is unusual in that the Mother of God is depicted alone, without the Christ Child. Her head is slightly inclined to the left, framed by a bright red maphorion, which inspired the name "Areovindos" or "Fire-appearing". The feast is celebrated on February 10th.
