More About this Item


Description: AN ICON SHOWING THE MOTHER OF GOD GALAKTOTROPHOUSA Veneto-Cretan, early 17th century Tempera on wood panel. Executed on a gold ground. The Mother of God holds the Child in her left arm. She turns to the left and turns her head towards the Christ Child. Christ holds his mother's breast. The image of the Christ feeding in the milk from his mother's breast may well be the most evocative representation of his human nature. The comparison between the life-giving milk and the blood flowing from the wounds in Jesus's side, granting humanity life and salvation, creates the theological context that connects the Mother of God Galaktotrophousa with Christ's suffering. Minimally restored. 37.2 x 30.1 cm. IKONE MIT DER GOTTESMUTTER GALAKTOTROPHOUSA Veneto-Kretisch, Anfang 17. Jh. Holztafel mit zwei aufgenagelten Rückseiten-Sponki. Eitempera auf Kreidegrund, Goldgrund. 37, 2 x 30, 1 cm. Das Motiv der stillenden Gottesmutter war schon im Altertum in Griechenland bekannt. Die Ernährung durch die Muttermilch ist ein wichtiges christliches Motiv. Als einziger Evangelist erwähnt Lukas, dass Maria ihren Sohn gestillt hat 'Selig ist der Leib, der dich getragen hat, und die Brüste, die du gesogen hast' (Lukas 11, 27). Punktuelle Einstimmungen."
