In 1531 the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to native Mexican convert St. Juan Diego on the mountain of Tepeyac near Mexico City. Her miraculous sign of love for the people of the New World was to impress her image on his tilma or mantle. Through this holy image many people have been brought to belief in Christ; her power to draw souls to her son continues even today.
Wood-mounted icons are on 5/8" ProWood® Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) with a wood-look foil finish, with tee-slots milled in the back for easy hanging. Icons are finished in classic cherry to replicate the traditional icon red, in keeping with Byzantine tradition. (Ancient icon board edges were frequently coated with red bole, a form of clay). Each mounted icon comes with a descriptive pamphlet explaining the symbolism and history of the image.
Please allow 5-10 business days for orders of 20 or more icons.
Our icon designs are also available as unmounted prints in sanctuary-size enlargements up to 38 inches wide. The latest technology enables enlargement without sacrificing quality. We do not currently have the ability to mount these prints on wood or any other material. You may purchase your own frame from a custom frame shop. Call 800-889-0105 for pricing and ordering.
In 1531 the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to native Mexican convert Juan Diego on the mountain of Tepeyac near Mexico City. Her miraculous sign of love for the people of the New World was the impression of her image on his tilma, or mantle. Mary chose to present herself as a woman bearing traits of both European and native Mexican peoples, thus signifying that she is mother of all. The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe blends traditional Marian imagery (drawn from the figure described in Revelation 12:1) with native Mexican religious emblems. Unlike other Marian images, this one is directly linked to the apparition and is not based on a description from a vision. The feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is celebrated on December 12; under this title she has been named patroness of Mexico, the Philippines, and all the Americas. Through this holy image many people have been brought to belief in Christ; her power to draw souls to her son continues even today.
