A neck suggests the post-lapsarian/sinful nature of humanity, where the neck only serves the purpose of bear the burden of a head full of sin. Depicting Christ without one is meet and right.

The painter of this schlock also had the audacity to style Rasputin as Great-martyr Gregory in the inscription. Sadly, there are many "icons" of him around. Ugh.

Rasputin is also depicted as a schema monk, whereas he had no monastic rank in real life. It was reputed that he was a man of low moral standards, but anyway, why do so many icons of him continue to be made?

Because people are always searching for some zany mystical experience.  And he was the poster child for that nonsense.

That and allowing sex during fasts and with whoever you wanted as long as it also included him.

Like Denise said.

Also, there's a strange group called Tsarebozhniki who hold the late Tsar as practically the Messiah. Those connected to the imperial court, such as Rasputin, are saints, in their eyes. I've commented on some of their "icons" previously in this thread.

Her right hand (left as you view it).  In her left hand (right as you view it) is Hagia Sophia.

I am curious about this one LBK.

I liked my interpretation:
Greece is in between a Rock (St. Peter's) and a Hard Place (Ialmisry's interpretation of the Phanar)

But is appears that a Russian version of the icon made a tour in Greece recently with a lot of hoopla. So far, it seems to be associated with Ioannis Kapodistrias (potential sainthood).  Or with the notion of both Churches being save by Russia (or something like that).

When was this icon written? And by whom?

Traditional Icons show the Theotokos holding the Christ-Child, but this icon seems to show a 'saint' instead.
Who is this saint?

Probably St Kosmas Aitolos, who traveled over northern Greece, teaching and preaching. Saint or otherwise, neither he, nor the map of Greece should be over the Virgin's body in place of Christ Emmanuel. Did she conceive and give birth to them?  Tongue
