Virgin Hodgetria Dexiokratousa
12 3/8 in. x 16 3/4 in.
Oil paint and 23 Karat gold leaf on poplar wood panel with carved in kovcheg

In this form of the Virgin Hodgetria, the Mother of God does not look directly at the viewer, but inclines her head slightly in a gesture of intercession with her Son on behalf of the world. She supports her Son with her right arm while the other out-stretched “guiding” hand beckons the viewer. Jesus gestures with one hand in blessing and the other holds a small scroll.

Generally the Virgin Hodgetria is shown with Christ on her left arm, this difference accounts for the appellation "Dexiokratousa" (right-handed).
