An Icon of Christ's Maternal Lineage

The above fresco, which is found in the Chapel of Saint George at the Parish Church of Saint Kosmas in Nea Philadelphia outside Athens, depicts Saint Maria, the great-grandmother of our Lord, holding in her lap her daughter Saint Anna, the grandmother of our Lord, who holds in her lap her daughter the Virgin Mary, the mother of our Lord, who holds in her lap her Son and our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
